Sweden pledges to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2045

Sweden pledges

Swedish Parliament has voted 254-41 in favour of adopting a climate bill and pledged to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045 to tackle climate change. The target demands at least 85% reduction in Sweden’s greenhouse gas emissions from its 1990 levels. The vote makes Sweden the first country to significantly strengthen its climate targets since the Paris Agreement in 2015.
