Who does what? To achieve the environmental quality objectives, we must all — government agencies, non-governmental and other organisations, companies, county administrative boards, municipalities, individuals, the Government and the Riksdag — get involved and assume our share of responsibility. Riksdag Sweden’s Parliament (the Riksdag), the supreme political decision-making body in the country, has adopted environmental quality objectives and interim targets for sustainable development. Government The Swedish Government bears overall responsibility for the environmental quality objectives. All Party Committee on Environmental Objectives An All Party Committee on Environmental Objectives has been set up to secure broad political consensus on environmental issues. The Environmental Objectives Council The Environmental Objectives Council is a platform for the heads of government agencies that are strategically important to achieving the environmental objectives. Swedish Environmental Protection Agency The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Swedish EPA) coordinates follow-up, provision of information and the use of economic impact assessments within the environmental objectives system. Central government agencies Eight national agencies have been assigned one or more of the environmental quality objectives, which it is their job to follow up and evaluate. Other agencies work within their respective sectors to promote progress towards the objectives. County administrative boards and Swedish Forest Agency In their capacity as regional environmental agencies, the county administrative boards play an overarching, coordinating part in work to achieve the environmental objectives. Municipalities The Swedish municipalities play an essential role in the work of achieving the environmental objectives. By translating national and regional objectives into local aims and actions, they can make the objectives effective tools in local politics. Business sector The business sector, in cooperation with other stakeholders, has a substantial role in achieving the environmental quality objectives. Today, many companies are engaged in structured environmental work that has a major bearing on the environment. Environmental organisations The environmental organisations are continuously engaged in a range of issues that are directly linked to the various environmental objectives.
