Transforming to Sustainable Transport in the Nordic Countries – and in Europe

Nordic Transport Ways is a report written by Nordic Action Group on Climate and Energy, a network for business, academia and civil society. It aims to bridge vision-actiongaps within the transport sector and demonstrate that increased competitiveness and transformation goes hand in hand. Nordic Transport Ways was presented for the first time for Ibrahim Baylan, Sweden’s Minister for Energy, and Anna Johansson, Sweden’s Minister for Infrastructure, at a high-level seminar on 30 November 2015. The report is officially launched at this seminar.
