The CO2 Act (SR 641.71) requires producers and importers of fossil fuels to compensate for part of the CO2 emissions resulting from their release. To do this, they must submit attestations from emission reduction and carbon storage projects or programmes that meet the requirements set out in Articles 5 and 5a of the Ordinance of 30 November 2012 on the Reduction of CO2 Emissions (SR 641.711). Eligible reduction projects or programmes must relate to the greenhouse gases listed in Article 1 of the CO2 Ordinance.
