The world’s greenest country (6)
In September 2015, the world’s countries gathered in New York at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit and agreed on 17 goals and 169 sub-goals as part of the new global agenda on sustainable development. These objectives cover the three dimensions of sustainable development: social, economic and environmental. At that time, Sweden was already a step ahead. Back in 1999, Sweden had adopted 16 environmental goals that covered different aspects of environmental protection, with the aim of achieving them by 2020.
