A statutory instrument becomes effective in May 2020 in Sweden saying that petroleum providers need to declare country of origin of liquid and gaseous fuel.
How could this be arranged as an active choice from the consumer instead of a provider declaration? Could it be arranged with oil trade instruments (like futures contracts, options, contracts for difference (CFD), exchange traded funds (ETF), etc.) by the end customer at the time of refueling?
Compare with active electricity choice (aktivt elval) in Sweden, where consumers choose what kind of electricity they want.
Some petroleum providers have said that the statutory instrument is impossible to fulfill, when interpreted as a declaration from their side.
I post in Stack Exchange Politics for lack of a more suitable forum. Something like Stack Exchange civil service would be more fitting.
The question is not about the logistics of delivery. The question is if current financial instruments are sufficient to implement this.
The regulation says, freely translated from Swedish:
information of a propellant exhaust of greenhouse gases over the life cycle, which fossil raw materials or renewable raw materials that the propellant consists of and the country of origin of the raw materials
(Swedish original: "information om ett drivmedels utsläpp av växthusgaser över livscykeln, vilka fossila råvaror eller förnybara råvaror som ingår i drivmedlet och råvarornas ursprungsland")
Of further importance is also the timing piece:
the information is regarding historical data about the propellant being sold and not up to date data about the propellant actually being provided at the time of purchase
(Swedish original: "informationen avser historiska data om det drivmedel som saluförs och inte aktuella data om det drivmedel som faktiskt erbjuds vid köptillfället")
