Emissions reduction

Swiss government cracks down on air travel for federal employees


The Swiss government has approved an action plan to reduce CO2 emissions from air travel by federal government employees by 30% by 2030.

Key measures include:

  • Mandating train travel for journeys under six hours.
  • Limiting business class flights to long-haul or multi-stop trips.
  • Reducing international conference delegations.

These steps are part of the government’s broader climate package to achieve climate neutrality in the federal administration by 2030, with a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 2006.
