Swiss vote on net-zero climate law

Switzerland imports around three quarters of its energy, with all the oil and natural gas consumed coming from abroad. Climate activists had initially wanted to push for a total ban on all oil and gas consumption in Switzerland by 2050.But the government balked at the so-called Glacier Initiative, drawing up a counter-proposal that scrapped the idea of a ban but included other elements. The text promises financial support of two billion Swiss francs ($2.2 billion) over a decade to promote the replacement of gas or oil heating systems with climate-friendly alter natives, as well as aid to push businesses towards green innovation.
