Emission reduction or carbon storage. A communication of the FOEN in its capacity as enforcement authority of the CO2 Ordinance. Status as of 2022
The CO2 Act (SR 641.71) requires producers and importers of fossil fuels to compensate a part of the CO2 emissions generated by their use. Approved Validators and verifiers (VVs) assess whether a project or programme satisfies the requirements laid down in the CO2 Ordinance. They then conduct a full appraisal and in validating the suitability of the project or programme, make a recommendation to the Compensation Office. In the course of periodical verifications, the VVs check that the emission reductions continue to meet the specifications set out in the project or programme description.
