The CO2 Act includes a wide range of specific measures to achieve the reduction targets for greenhouse gas emissions.
Switzerland implements its international obligation in the CO2 Act, which establishes the targets and measures in law. In September 2020 Parliament adopted a total revision of the CO2 Act, which will come into force in 2022 at the earliest. A partial revision and an amendment to the CO2 Ordinance came into effect on 1 January 2021 as a transitional regulation for 2021.
