Compensation projects in Switzerland and abroad are reducing emissions. Fuel importers are obliged to offset part of their CO2 emissions from transport through compensation projects.
Greenhouse gas emissions can be offset through climate protection projects in Switzerland and abroad. The FOEN issues tradeable attestations for proven reductions, which are needed by fuel importers that are required to offset emissions, or for the voluntary compensation of flight emissions, for example.
Administrative office for compensation
The FOEN and SFOE jointly operate the administrative office for compensation, which is the point of contact for project developers, audit offices and buyers of attestations. It also conducts regular information events and provides information regarding news of CO2 compensation.
