Environment and climate

Environmental policy concerns creating a society free of emissions and hazardous toxins, with consideration for people, animals and nature. It also concerns creating a sustainable society that is adapted to climate change. Many environmental issues are global in nature and consequently a large part of the work takes place in collaboration with other countries.
