A climate target for Switzerland - How much ambition can we afford? (2012)

Climate Press No 31
2764

The international community has agreed on the target to limit global warming to 2 degrees. This means that CO2 emissions have to be reduced quickly and substantially. On the international level it is not clear so far how to achieve that aim: The reduction measures announced will not be sufficient.
What contribution is Switzerland able and willing to make? A global agreement cannot be expected in the near future. However, Switzerland does have alternatives to establish a forwardlooking climate policy. An ambitious climate target would have advantages and disadvantages. In any case, however, it would be economically viable.



This Climate Press is based on the OcCC report «Climate targets and emission reductions – An analysis and political vision for Switzerland»
