Environment & Climate Change

Voters reject three environmental bills

The Swiss voters recently decided on three environmental bills. The first bill concerned the revised CO2 Act, which would have allowed Switzerland to build on and reinforce its current climate policy in order to limit the global temperature increase, which requires a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The second bill aimed to better protect the environment and drinking water. The third bill aimed to ban the use and import of foods containing artificial pesticides in Switzerland.
