The Swedish Government, whichever political constellation the upcoming elections result in, is expected to deliver a comprehensive long-term climate policy action plan in 2023. It has to address the question of how to accelerate the Swedish industry’s climate transformation and mobilise the private and public capital needed to do it. In preparation for this, last year, the current Government tasked the Swedish Agency for Growth Policy Analysis (Tillväxtanalys), in collaboration with several other government agencies, with producing evidence and advice on the topic.
The supporting agencies are now starting to deliver on their assignment, providing analyses, conclusions, and suggestions. On 12 August, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvårdsverket) published a report proposing specific measures to facilitate the supply of capital for the business sector’s climate transition.
