Fossil Free Sweden is working to increase the pace of the climate transition. As part of Fossil Free Sweden, in a bottom-up approach, 22 industries have produced their own roadmaps for fossil free competitiveness.

Their roadmaps show opportunities, identify obstacles, and contain proposals for solutions, both through their own commitments and through political proposals.

The seminar is arranged by the Swedish embassy in Tokyo and Japan Climate Leaders’ partnership JCLP.
