The Swedish government is introducing tax breaks on repairs to everything from bicycles to washing machines so it will no longer make sense to throw out old or broken items and buy new ones.
The incentives are part of a shift in government focus from reducing carbon emissions produced domestically to reducing emissions tied to goods produced elsewhere. (Sweden has cut its annual emissions of carbon dioxide by 23% since 1990 and already generates more than half of its electricity from renewable sources)
Let's hope these kind of progressive ideas and policies will become standard practice sooner rather than later.
The Swedish media and government is beyond pathetic and stupid, they are like their masters US propagating about russian threat, are they really that naive and stupid to even think the people of sweden will fall for their ludicrous lies coming from these psyopaths.
The result so far: Gender separated bathhouses and busses. Honor oppression and discrimination in the suburbs. One of the highest rape statistics in the World. The ministers who visit Iran wears hijab.
Today the Swedish Government has appointed me as State Secretary at the Ministry of Finance. . I have been working with Minister Shekarabi as his political adviser for the last two years. It is a privilege to continue working with him, now as his State Secretary. . #documentinglife#magnumphotos#visualsoflife#swedishgovernment
Sweden 🇸🇪 wants to become a circular economy. What does it mean, that a country is 'circular'? Is it different to being sustainable? Some thoughts on the blog today. Picture from Stockholm and this winter #circulareconomy#swedishgovernment
Dear mister Trump and also mister Springare. Nothing is going on in Sweden except a high level of fredagsmys today. Calm the f***k down!! " "Claim: "The high level of immigration means that the system in Sweden is on the verge of collapse." Facts: No. The Swedish economy is strong. Despite the high costs of immigration, Sweden recorded a public finance surplus in 2015, and the forecasts indicate that the surplus is set to grow until 2020." #swedishgovernment#facts#notalternativefacts#trump#peterspringare
