Swiss transport is responsible for 40% of national CO2 emissions. To achieve Switzerland’s net-zero target, the greenhouse gas emissions of the Swiss transport sector must be substantially reduced. For this purpose, a basic distinction is made between the three approaches “improve,” “avoid,” and “relocate.” Barbara Dubach talks to Martin Peter and Vanessa Angst about different scenarios for reducing greenhouse gases in transport, why e-mobility alone is not enough, and what we can do to achieve net zero by 2050.
