Fossil Free Sweden: The Swedish Model for a Carbon-Neutral Economy

Featured image

Sweden has passed a law to become fossil-free by 2045 and has created elaborate strategies to achieve this goal.

A plethora of policy and market mechanisms have been formed of which a special interest lies in the "green bonds" – a financing tool adopted widely across municipalities in Sweden, enabling large-scale investments in renewable energies and energy efficiency projects – mostly in Sweden, but also abroad.

With these mechanisms, Sweden is a leader in demonstrating a positive link between going fossil-free and a country’s prosperity and therefore increases the incentive to exit the fossil economy to move to a low-carbon economy.
