Land is under pressure from humans and climate change, but it is part of the solution

Land is already under growing human pressure and climate change is adding to these pressures. At the same time, keeping global warming to well below 2 °C can be achieved only by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors including land and food, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in its latest report on Thursday.

Bundesrat beschliesst Paket zur Senkung des Treibhausgas-Ausstosses in der Bundesverwaltung

Der Bundesrat hat an seiner Sitzung vom 3. Juli 2019 beschlossen, anknüpfend an die Energiestrategie 2050 die Treibhausgasemissionen der Bundesverwaltung stärker zu senken. Er hat dazu das «Klimapaket Bundesverwaltung» verabschiedet. Dieses gibt die Stossrichtung für weitere Massnahmen zum Flugverkehr, zur Fahrzeugflotte und zum Gebäudebereich vor. Der Bundesrat will, dass die Bundesverwaltung ihre Treibhausgasemissionen im Inland bis 2030 um 50% gegenüber dem Ausgangsjahr 2006 reduziert, das VBS um mindestens 35% gegenüber 2001. Der Rest wird durch Emissionszertifikate kompensiert. Die Bundesverwaltung nimmt damit ihre Vorbildfunktion zur Reduktion der Treibhausgasemissionen verstärkt wahr.

“Now that you have the support, you should be able to do more”

What is the best way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by scientists travelling for business, particularly by plane? This was the issue to be discussed at the morning conference «Decarb science! But how?» ahead of the SCNAT Delegate Assembly on 24 May. The colossal scale of the problem lies in the fact that it requires a change in scientific culture. Ultimately, there are no straightforward answers: a creative, nuanced approach is what is needed.
