Yes to the climate protection law: Give the mountains your voice

The effects of global warming are clearly noticeable and visible in the Alpine regions. The mountains are changing rapidly. To protect what we love, we must reduce our carbon emissions to zero. The climate protection law, which Switzerland will vote on on June 2, creates the basis for this.

On the voting Sunday of June 18, the electorate will decide on that Climate Protection Act. This framework law defines important interim goals and establishes specific measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve climate neutrality by 2050. If you haven't found time to deal with this important template yet, we would like to give you a hand at this point.

In short: That's what the Climate Protection Act is about

  • The climate protection law is the indirect counter-proposal to the glacier initiative from 2019.
  • The goal is a climate-neutral Switzerland by 2050.
  • Specific measures include subsidies (CHF 3,2 billion) for replacing fossil fuel heating systems, for building renovations and for companies that use innovative, climate-friendly technologies.

Why you should support the Climate Protection Act

As part of the Paris Climate Agreement, Switzerland has committed to halving its CO2 emissions by 2030 (compared to 1990 levels). It is aiming for climate neutrality by 2050 at the latest. In order to be able to achieve these goals at all, the Climate Protection Act is needed. This enshrines the climate goals in the law and promotes the replacement of oil and gas heating systems.

The Climate Protection Act strengthens climate protection without additional taxes or bans and reduces Switzerland's dependence on oil and gas imports. In addition, the template supports companies that convert their production to more environmentally friendly processes.

Together for climate protection

Protect Our Winters Switzerland has him under the Kampagne "Give the mountains a voice" brought together a wide range of Swiss and international companies in the outdoor industry who are committed to effective climate protection in the.

Around 4.5 million people in Switzerland are regularly out and about in the mountains and feel the climate-related changes in the Alpine region up close.

You too can help to protect what you love and put a yes for the climate protection law in the ballot box on June 18th.
