Budget 2021 - transition of the transport sector

Last updated: 25 October 2021

Money under the government's budget proposals for sustainable growth and climate transition set aside for the transport sector. This includes SEK1.22 bn in 2021 and 2022, and SEK 890m in 2023.     


The Government proposed initiatives in the Budget Bill for 2021 such as:

- Changes in the bonus-malus system: the reduction obligation will be tightened to have more renewable fuels mixed in with petrol and diesel, so that long-term conditions are created for the production of Swedish biofuels.

- A major investment is being made in railways in the form of greater maintenance. To continue pushing for the transfer of freight transport from roads to rail. The Government proposed to extend and further develop the environmental compensation.

- Green Cargo will receive a capital injection to ensure the company’s long-term stability and profitability. This capital injection is given in light of the environmental compensation for rail freight transport simultaneously proposed to the Riksdag.
