In 2017, the Swedish Parliament adopted a climate policy framework that included the goal of making Sweden climate neutral by 2045. Based on this decision, Fossil Free Sweden has encouraged different business sectors to draw up their own roadmaps as to how they will be fossil free while also increasing competitiveness.
In the roadmaps, these business sectors describe when and how they will be fossil free, what technological solutions need to be developed, what investments need to be made and what obstacles need to be removed. The roadmaps also contain proposals from the sectors for commitments by business stakeholders, and they also put forward political solutions.
The work on the roadmaps has been led by industry organisations or corporations and has been broad-based and transparent, and included large sections of participating industrial sectors. The sectors own their roadmaps and are responsible for the visions, goals and the policy proposals that are presented. Fossil Free Sweden has provided a framework and a template for the process.
