Tracking Sweden’s consumption-based environmental impacts

A society in which the major environmental problems in Sweden have been solved … without increasing environmental and health problems outside Sweden’s borders.

This is what Sweden has committed to deliver to the next generation. But how do know if we are on track?

In the quest to deliver the promises under the Generation Goal and Agenda 2030, the Swedish EPA commissioned a team of researchers to create a model that could capture both the territorial and global impacts of Sweden’s consumption.

By combining national data on Swedish consumption with international data on financial flows between countries the PRINCE* model aims to provide policymakers with sound data to enable decision-making for sustainable production and consumption.

This webinar will bring together researchers and policy-makers to provide a meaningful discussion on the gaps and possibilities between the current tools and policy landscape in achieving SDG12.

*PRINCE stands for Policy-Relevant Indicators for National Consumption and Environment.
