President Áder meets with Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf to discuss the environment

President János Áder met with Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf in Stockholm on Tuesday to discuss climate change and the environment.

According to MTI, the leaders met during World Water Week and discussed ocean pollution, overfishing and Sweden’s commitments to fighting climate change made at the 2015 Paris climate summit.

Sweden pledged to cut its domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 85 percent from 1990 levels by 2045. President Áder says this goal “seems realistic” judging by their economic status and recent results.

President Áder said Hungary could learn from Sweden. He said the country has a broad consensus on decisions affecting future generations.

During his visit, the president also attended the Junior Water Prize award ceremony, where Hungary was represented by the Szent László Grammar School.
