Bending the global emissions curve: Sweden’s climate policy opportunities and responsibilities

Join Misum for a high-level webinar exploring how Swedish climate policy can connect more ambitiously with international sustainability goals.

In December 2020, the SNS Economic Policy Council released their interdisciplinary report ‘Swedish Policy for Global Climate’. The influential report focused on finding impactful immediate solutions to reducing carbon emissions, receiving considerable attention in the Swedish public sphere. On May 25, Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum) is convening a virtual event to present and discuss research findings from the 2020 SNS Economic Policy Council report. Discussions will examine where and how Swedish climate policy can connect more ambitiously with international goals.

The 2020 Council Chair, Professor John Hassler from the Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES) will join a distinguished panel of high-level actors from local and international policy, natural science and development economics. The panel will explore pathways for Sweden to step up in conversations on a global minimum carbon tax and halting fossil fuel subsidies. The seminar will also examine innovations in EU climate policy connected to the EU Carbon Trading System (EU CTS) and what Sweden can contribute to - and learn from - this work.
