Sweden Plan to Increase Emissions

How Dare You!


Sweden’s new right-wing government is set to present its new climate ambitions at COP27 this week, which show not only reduced goals, but an increase in CO2 emissions.

This year’s UN climate summit, COP27, is taking place between 6-18 November in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

“It is, of course difficult not to be able to show tighter results,” Minister of Climate and Environment Romina Pourmokhtari said in SVT’s live broadcast on the occasion of COP27, adding, however that “the world is doing badly in achieving its climate goals – but the EU is not”.

Sweden will also announce at COP27 that it is increasing its CO2 emissions by 10% due to the government’s plans. This is partly due to the energy crisis faced by the country and the expectations of the right-wing on the new government, meaning it is harder for them to hold themselves to the highest standards in terms of emissions.
