Based on the decision by the parliament to make Sweden climate neutral by 2045, the Fossil Free Sweden initiative has encouraged business sectors to draw up their own roadmaps as to how they will be fossil free while also increasing their competitiveness.

In these roadmaps, the industries describe when and how they will be fossil free, what technological solutions need to be developed, what investments need to be made and what obstacles need to be removed. The roadmaps also contain proposals regarding commitments for the stakeholders and political solutions.

The roadmaps are managed by either industry associations or companies in an open process that aims to include the entire sectors. Thirteen roadmaps have been handed over to the Government and more are in progress.
