SYFC position on CO2 law

Summary of SYFC's position on the upcoming CO2 law


  1. We support a CO2 law because it is better than no law at all

  2. We support this law because it is more ambitious than the previous law

  3. No matter what happens next, we will keep lobbying for national and international ambitious climate policies that are in line with the Paris Agreement.


After much debate between both chambers in Parliament since a revision of the CO2 law was proposed by the Federal Council in December 2017, the law is getting its final touches. As it stands today (see here), the law is true to Swiss politics - a sound compromise, despite opposing stances regarding many of its main points.
