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.
