– the Report is a very good work and together with several other reports that have come shows that we are on a good path has taken many good strategic decisions to set but we still have a long way to go to walk, " says Tomas Eneroth, (S) minister of infrastructure.
" It's one of the reasons why we transforms and gets a new infrastrukturdepartement where the electrification of the vehicle fleet can be coordinated and accelerated. It will be an important way to reach the climate policy targets.
that report was published, gave the government a new mission in the work with the conversion to fossil-free transport.
– the transport administration should follow up on the climate policy objectives and have resultatkonferenser each year so that we will know that we are on the right path, " says Tomas Eneroth.
– Infrastruktursidan can not be separated from the climate policy work. With the rather large assignment we have, we must ask if and we do, together with industries, not least in the established freight council where we work with both the authorities and the industries for the conversion.
Isabella Lövin, (MP), welcomes the report from the Climate council.
" They point to the issues that I see as absolutely central; that we must ensure that legislation is in line with the klimatlagen, that we must look much more on the transport side, to put the end date for the sale of fossil fuels. But we must also look at the behavior, how we plan our cities so that we reduce the dependency on cars in the cities.
Several of the recommendations or proposals put forward in the report is already in the works.
" That we shall review all the relevant legislation we have already agreed in Januariavtalet. We have also agreed to strengthen up bonus malus, and to look at climate-smart transport, we will absolutely continue to work with.
When the climate policy framework, it was decided, there was a large political consensus, seven of the parliament eight parties stood behind the decision. In the budget from the M and Kd which was voted through in december disappeared millions of sek in different climate measures.
" We still have different views on individual reforms, but the most important thing is that we raise our eyes and see the big picture. The big picture is that we need to ask if the whole of society and then we need to use both the carrot and the stick. We must work together, the policy and government must work together with business, industry, municipalities, civil society, and with researchers in order to ensure that we get the synergies, " says Isabella Lövin.
– the very point of climate policy the council is that they should have a helicopter perspective and show the way – this transition is historically large, but it is also possible. Council chairman Ingrid Bonde said a few years ago, many that this conversion was not possible but it is. Just in the same way that many thought it could not prohibit smoking in restaurants and other places a few years before all these rökförbuden entered over the entire world, but it was possible and now it is a reality.
