WHAT IS THE CO2 TAX ON CAR IMPORTS?
In 2012, the law on the reduction of CO2 emissions, or – in the vernacular – CO2 tax in Switzerland for Auto Import was introduced. This gives the federal government the opportunity to influence the CO2 pollution caused by vehicles by means of an incentive tax.
HOW DO DISCOUNTS BECOME POSSIBLE?
The CO2 Börse AG creates incentives for Swiss car dealers and large importers to transact CO2 emission favourable vehicles through it. The responsibly managed CO2 pool thus makes it possible to offset high-emission vehicles with low-emission ones. This makes it possible for CO2 Börse AG to offer companies and private individuals who import a car a high discount on theCO2 tax.
