Six of seven parties in Sweden’s Enviromental Objectives Committee (Miljömålberedningen) have written an opinion piece published in Dagens Nyheter, outlining their proposals on how Sweden can reduce its greenhouse gas emissions until 2045. The authors suggest that new forms of collaboration between the government and industry must be investigated promptly to allow for emission reductions, for example in the most economically important industries and also in the emission-intensive iron and steel industry. Regarding domestic transport, the authors also propose specific targets, calling for emissions to be at least 70% lower than the 2010 level in 2030. Finally, they propose the establishment of an air pollution control strategy to improve air quality in urban areas where the highest levels of air pollution occurs.
The Committee is due to submit its interim report on a climate and air quality strategy for Sweden on 22 June , according to its website.
