One tonne of CO₂ corresponds to the volume of a balloon with a diameter of 9 metres. The average Swiss fills almost 14 of these balloons per year. The CO₂ concentration in the atmosphere rises further and accelerates climate change.
In the Paris Climate Convention, Switzerland has committed itself to limiting global warming to 1.5°C. In order to achieve this goal and thus halt climate change, CO₂ emissions must not exceed 0.6 t per person. This also requires you!
Take responsibility for your carbon footprint true to the motto “Avoid – reduce – support ”.
The main causes of harmful emissions include travel by plane or car, your heating and electricity consumption, and your diet. You can find more information about climate change, myclimate and your personal climate protection options in our FAQs.
