Green transition and energy on Swedish Presidency of the EU’s ‘to-do’ list

Sweden took the reigns of the EU Presidency on 1 January 2023 with a busy programme that gives high priority to the security, competitiveness, green and energy transitions, democratic values and the rule of law in Europe.  

Regarding the tourism and hospitality sectors, the Swedish Presidency will mainly focus on the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation, the Fit for 55 package and the Short-Term Rental Accommodations Regulation.  

The Presidency intends to strengthen the social dialogue and will highlight how education can contribute to transition and upskilling. The Presidency will also continue the work on the proposal for new VAT rules for the digital age and continue negotiations with the European Parliament on the ePrivacy Regulation.
