A basic distinction is made between mandatory and voluntary offsetting. We apply our rigorous quality criteria and high standards both in the mandatory market and in voluntary offsetting. These include attestations according to Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN)/Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) guidelines as well as emissions reductions that are registered by myclimate (myclimate CH VER).
Since 2013 and in all likelihood until the end of 2030, the revised CO₂ Act requires fuel importers in Switzerland to enact offsetting measures. They are required to domestically offset a portion of the CO₂ emissions generated by transport fuel with emissions reduction attestations. The FOEN is the enforcement authority for CO2 regulations. It approves and registers projects and issues CO2 attestations.
Our portfolio also offers numerous projects in Switzerland for voluntary offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions for individuals and companies.
