Sammanfattning: Climate change is one of the greatest threats to earth and mankind today. Due to mankind’slarge emissions of greenhouse gas the temperature has risen in the atmosphere. One significantinternational action to reduce emissions in Europe is the EU Emission Trading System (EUETS).In Sweden, around 37 percent of emissions are related to the EU-ETS and it’s animportant tool for Sweden to achieve their climate goals. The system has not been withoutcriticism since it started in 2005 and has gone through several reforms.Previous research shows that risks like climate change are difficult to manage and that framingclimate risks impact how we decide to do so. The purpose of this study is thereof to examinehow four Swedish climate actors frame risks in media discussions about the EU-ETS. Aqualitative content analysis was conducted based on debate articles from the actors. The resultshows that the two government organizations and the trade association had a more economicand market based framing of risks than the nonprofit organization. The actor’s different interestshave a lot to do with how they frame climate risks and furthermore it influences whichmanagement of risks that they look for and promote.
