Continue measures under the current CO2 Act

24 June 2021


The National Council's Environment Committee wants to extend the expiring reduction target for greenhouse gas emissions with a parliamentary initiative and continue important measures based on it.

The Commission's intention is for its transitional solution to expire at the end of 2024. A new climate policy proposal is to be drawn up by then. The big question of how Switzerland's climate policy will continue is to be clarified within this framework. The Commission points out that Switzerland is still obliged to reduce its emissions by 50 per cent by 2030 compared to 1990 as a result of its ratification of the Paris Agreement.
