Back to overview

On November 1, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven delivered a speech at the UN Climate Change Conference COP 26, where he remarked:

“The countries that are able must pave the way.
In Sweden, we are presently undergoing a transition to net zero that goes hand in hand with growth, job creation and the rise of a stronger society where no one is left behind.

My message is this: The climate transition is not only possible, it also brings enormous opportunities with it. Opportunities to build better societies. But only so if we ensure that the creation of a sustainable world is a just process, benefitting everyone.”
