Swedish GHG emissions continue to fall

Official figures for 2006 show emissions have dropped by nine per cent since 1990

Sweden's greenhouse gas emissions fell by 1.7 per cent in 2006, according to government figures released on Tuesday. The drop contributed to a nine per cent decrease since 1990. The economy grew by 44 per cent over the same period, the government said. Carbon dioxide and fluorinated gas emissions have tended to rise but methane and nitrous oxide levels declined. The most significant reductions were in methane levels. Under the Kyoto protocol Sweden may increase its 1990 emissions by four per cent. See government press release and figures.
