Market and business environment
During the year the COVID-19 restrictions concerning the freedom of movement resulted in reduced driving. However, the car has been an important means of transportation for many people in the COVID-19 pandemic. Sweden has rules whereby fuel retailers are obliged to help reduce climate impact. This could be achieved by adding biofuel, HVO, to the petrol and diesel they sell. By adding AdBlue for newer diesel cars, the environmental impact is reduced.
