Climate policy targets

Switzerland has made international commitments to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, and is thus helping to limit global warming.

Switzerland ratified the UN Climate Convention in 1993 and thus committed to contribute to the stabilisation of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous interference with the climate system.

Reduction targets

In compliance with its international commitment, Switzerland is pursuing concrete targets to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Reduction targets are set in commitment periods and enshrined in the CO2 Act.

Target achievement review

A review of target achievement takes place at the end of each commitment period.
