The bill outlines over 70 different measures, including that stopping biodiversity loss by 2010 be designated Sweden's 16th national environmental quality objective (EED 07/06/04). Other priorities include the establishment of 14 new marine reserves, control of toxic substances in building materials, and a campaign for public access to product information under the Reach EU chemical policy.
