Abstract: Sustainability at the level of national policy and regional programmes is implemented in project funding. If tiering is to be effective methods of screening projects for environmental impact and for deciding if projects are in line with policy are needed. Project funding can not be shown to be influenced by programme ambitions for sustainable development with regards to the environmental component. Sector integration which is central to Swedish sustainability policy seems so far not to have had any great impact.
