  • Abstract:
    Swedish industry supports sustainable development and recognizes this as a business opportunity. The market economy approach along with flexible, efficient economic instruments are key factors to enable industry to positively respond to sustainable development in terms of resource efficiencies and environmental protection. Swedish industry, by virtue of its being a world leader in reducing environmental problems, can act as a catalyst and example to others for moving towards sustainable development at local, national and international levels.
