DescriptionThe Environmental Objectives Portal is a gateway to information about Sweden's environmental objectives and progress towards achieving them. In 1999, 15 environmental quality objectives were adopted by Parliament. Objective 12 is entitled "Sustainable Forests" and states that "The value of forests and forest land for biological production must be protected, at the same time as biological diversity and cultural heritage and recreational assets are safeguarded". A 16th objective, on biodiversity, was adopted in November 2005. They define the state of environment which environmental policy aims to achieve and provide a coherent framework for environmental programmes and inititatives at national, regional and local level.
