The Swedish Strategy for Sustainable Economic, Social and Environmental Development (2003 / 04:129) is a revised version of the national strategy for sustainable development presented in 2002. Drawn up in co-operation with the Left Party, the strategy builds on the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development held in Johannesburg, the EU strategy for sustainable development and the so-called Lisbon process, and addresses the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.

Government efforts in this sphere are based on eight core areas: - The future environment - Limitation of climate change - Population and public health - Social cohesion, welfare and security - Employment and learning in a knowledge society - Sustainable economic growth and competitiveness - Regional development and regional conditions - Development of sustainable community planning
