Also, I’m long overdue for a post on sustainability initiatives in Sweden, but this write up is again, a nice overview of the some of their initiatives, at least in the energy sector. The ambitious goal of getting off fossil fuels all together by 2020 was announced by the PM in the fall, and the country is coming together to get it done.
