Policy Pulse - 18 May 2021 - Veritas Global
In September 2020, the Swiss Parliament adopted new revisions to the CO2 law. On 13 June 2021, Swiss citizens will vote on whether to accept the new provisions.
Switzerland targets reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. The new CO2 law identifies specific measures for achieving the climate target.
The proposed changes could have far reaching impacts on Swiss energy security, competitiveness and social well-being. Table 1 summarizes the potential winners and losers associated with the proposed policy changes.
