Key message

The previously positive trend towards improved air quality in Sweden’s population centres has tapered off and there is no evident trend at present.

d) What is the 2020 outlook (date flexible) for the topic in question and how will this affect possible impacts on the natural environment and human health/well-being?

The previously positive trend towards improved air quality in Sweden’s population centres has tapered off and there is no evident trend at present.

Sweden has 16 national environmental quality objectives. The goals describe what quality and state of Sweden’s environmental, natural and cultural resources are ecologically sustainable in the long term. The goals need to be implemented within one generation – that is, by the year 2020 (2050 in the case of the climate objective).

More action is needed

The Clean Air environmental quality objective can be achieved if further action is taken. The values of the environmental quality objectives are more stringent than the environmental quality standards for air, but are not legally binding as the standards are.
