Switzerland joins the climate club of the G7 industrialised countries

The Swiss government apparently found the climate club concept too vague for a long time. Now she's changing her mind - and joining the alliance. The purpose of the alliance is for the G7 members and other countries to set goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including their measurement and recording. Switzerland joins the climate protection efforts of the seven largest industrialised countries. The Swiss government decided on Friday to join the so-called G7 climate club. The β€œNeue ZΓΌrcher Zeitung” first reported on the decision. The country had hesitated to join the climate club for more than a year. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) launched this at the G7 summit in June 2022 at Elmau Castle. The purpose of the alliance is for the G7 members and other countries to set goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including their measurement and recording. Essentially, it's about uniting as many countries as possible to agree on common paths to climate neutrality by 2050. The members should coordinate with each other on a selection of climate policy instruments. https://www.handelsblatt.com/politik/international/klimaneutralitaet-die-schweiz-tritt-dem-klimaklub-der-g7-industriestaaten-bei/29407426.html

            Switzerland's decision to join the G7 climate club is a positive step towards international cooperation on climate change. Collaboration among industrialized nations is crucial to effectively address the global climate crisis and set ambitious emissions reduction goals. Let's hope this move leads to meaningful action and progress in the fight against climate change. 🌍🀝 #ClimateAction #GlobalCooperation
