18 December 2021

Press release of the Federal Council of 17.12.2021

Bern, 17.12.2021 - On 17 December 2021, the Federal Council opened the consultation on the revised CO₂ Act for the period from 2025 to 2030. It aims to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and thus achieve the 2030 climate target. The Federal Council has dispensed with instruments that contributed to the rejection of the last revision. The new proposal is based on supplementing the existing CO₂ levy with effective incentives and targeted promotion and investment, and supporting ongoing developments. The focus is on measures that enable the population to reduce CO₂ emissions in everyday life.
