What's New ... Participants agree on the relevance of compensating environmental losses

2011.04.19. EESweden and Enetjärn AB in Umeå organized a successful gathering of authorities, environmental organizations, developers, and academics to discuss how resource-based environmental compensation could be used as a new tool in Swedish environmental policy. These measures are frequently used abroad following chemical releases or planned infrastructure development but have been slow to develop in Sweden. We thank the speakers for their contribution on how to improve the use and effectiveness of these measures. Post conference material found here.Read more in English here.
