Economic measures

Market-based measures are instruments developed to achieve environmental goals less expensively and more flexibly than with conventional political regulatory mechanisms. Examples of market-based measures in aviation include emissions-based fees, emissions trading and CO2 offsetting mechanisms.

There are currently two mandatory market-based measures in Switzerland to compensate for CO2 aviation emissions, in addition to various voluntary measures and measures applied on a private basis. They make it possible to factor in and reduce the impact of aviation on the climate.
