In June 2017, Sweden’s Riksdag decided by a large political majority to introduce a climate policy framework with a climate act for Sweden. This framework is the most important climate reform in Sweden’s history and sets out implementation of the Paris Agreement in Swede. By 2045, Sweden is to have zero net emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The LCI found many of the Swedish climate solutions to be helpful to Taiwan’s sustainable development. We look forward to welcome Business Sweden to join the ECCT LCI to share the Swedish experience and solutions in reducing carbon footprint.
