Swiss climate policy
As a member of the Swiss Climate Alliance, Alliance Sud advocates for an ambitious and fair Swiss climate policy.
What it is about
Climate justice also entails Switzerland using the levers available to it to realise the goal of the Paris Agreement, that of limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Besides being directly responsible for its own emissions, Switzer-land is also home to many multinational corporations and a leading financial centre. It is also a protagonist in the global fossil fuels trade. These companies and financial players are not subject to any binding requirements for phasing out fossil fuels and are maximising their profits while not paying for the resulting damage to the climate.
