In 2015, Switzerland committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 50% between 1990 and 2030. The government intends to achieve up to a quarter of the target through international offsets. According to Climate Watch Data, Switzerland`s GHG emissions decreased by 8% between 1990 and 2017. He said the Swiss government was in talks with several other countries that could sign an agreement similar to Peru`s. “The next in the series,” he said, is Ghana and discussions are underway with Senegal, Morocco, Thailand, Mexico, Chile and Argentina. However, “these processes are not always easy,” he warned. Offsets typically support projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the short or long term. Renewable energy is a common type of project, such as wind farms, biomass energy, bioferments or dams.
