Aviation has far-reaching effects on the environment. Ensuring economic viability and meeting mobility requirements while also achieving sustainability goals is a huge challenge.

Locally, aviation creates noise and pollutants, and these must be reduced to a minimum. To achieve this goal, Switzerland has created its own regulations, norms and incentive systems. These are now to be maintained and developed.
Aviation must also make a contribution to reducing the climate impact, as also required by Switzerland’s Climate Strategy. This means international obligations must be met and effective measures taken.
