The overall goal of Swedish environmental policy is to hand over to the next generation a society in which the major environmental problems have been solved, without increasing environmental and health problems outside Sweden's borders.
This is the generational goal, which serves to guide environmental action in Sweden. It has been adopted by the country's parliament, along with 16 environmental quality objectives covering different areas. These goals are a promise to future generations of clean air, a healthy living environment, and rich opportunities to enjoy nature.
To achieve the environmental objectives, everyone has to play their part – public agencies, business communities, stakeholder organisations and, not least, each of us as individuals.
