Environmental Code DS2000:61

Legislative
Law
Passed in 1999
The Swedish Environmental Code contains 15 separate environmental acts, which have been consolidated into the environmental code.
 
 These concern the management of land and water areas, environmental quality standards, environmental impact statements and other decision guidance data, protection of nature (animals and plant species), environmentally hazardous activities and health protection, polluted areas, water operations and agriculture, genetic engineering, chemical products and biotechnical organisms as well as waste and producer responsibility.
 
 The Environmental Code requires permits for major activities that are expected to be environmentally hazardous. Evaluating the impact on GHG emissions forms a part of the procedure for permit appraisal.
