René Estermann reflected in the interview the subsidies and price-related savings for fossil fuels and put them in relation to the possible cost of a climate-neutral Switzerland. Another priority for the myclimate managing director is the implementation of the polluter pays principle for emissions.

René Estermann also discussed the apparent or real antagonisms of voluntary engagements and legal regulations as well as the difference between an international and national climate change commitment.

The interview was conducted by Dr. Jürg Meier. Read the full interview here.
