Agreements for the implementation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement
Switzerland’s commitment under the Paris Agreement is a reduction of its greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent in 2030 compared to 1990 levels (Nationally Determined Contribution, NDC). The Paris Agreement anchors through its Article 6.2 bi- or plurilateral cooperation in the NDC achievement. To this aim, Switzerland concludes bilateral Agreements. The Agreements govern the framework conditions for the cooperation and define the requirements for the recognition of international transfers of mitigation outcomes. Thereby, the Agreements establish the legal framework for commercial agreements between seller and buyer of mitigation outcomes.
