Sweden looks to strengthen environmental laws and broaden view on climate change

On Wednesday October 28th, Sustainability Forum organized a seminar with Stefan Nyström, the Administrative Director of the All Party Committee on Environmental Objectives (Miljömålsberedningen*) and researchers from Lund University who discussed how to turn words into action in the Swedish climate policy on the road towards zero emissions.

Lund University presenters and panelists Markku Rummukainen, Magnus Jiborn, Astrid Kander, Roger Hildingsson, Fredrik N G Andersson, and Max Åhman were joined by Stefan Nyström to discuss how and why we must combat climate change.

Strategies discussed included facilitating emissions reductions, energy systems transition, technology transfers, climate finance and sustainable development. To become even more of a role model for other nations and future generations, Sweden is working to create clear rules, long-term plans, easily available data, and transparent policies to prevent further climate change.
