The Green transition and competitiveness

Climate change – the great challenge of our time – also offers great opportunities for change and modernisation. This is not just an environmental issue – the transition is part of our policy for competitiveness, job creation and welfare.

The group on The Green transition and competitiveness will investigate ways of achieving the changes Sweden needs to become an ecologically sustainable society with a competitive business sector. Its work will help to give practical and visible form to the ambition of Sweden and the Nordic region to lead by example. The approach will be that Sweden’s place is at the forefront of policy development for green growth in the international policy arena.

The group will analyse issues including sustainable investment, economic incentives, systems solutions for resource efficiency, research and skills development, and impact on business.

The group’s co-chairs

Maria Wetterstrand and Jonas Karlsson
