What would consumption in line with the 1.5°C target look like? Take part in this webinar to hear about the new Swedish proposal for a consumption-based climate target, possibly the first in the world.

In the webinar, there will be presentations from several studies that focus on consumption patterns in different countries that are compatible with climate targets. Differences and similarities between the studies and their results will be presented. Possible policy implications will be discussed in a panel. The unanimous suggestions from the Swedish all-parties committee on environmental quality objectives will also be presented.

How does the Swedish based consumption-based climate goal work?
