This report examines government support for ethanol, biodiesel and SVO in Switzerland. It forms part of a multi-country effort by the Global Subsidies Initiative (GSI) to characterize and quantify subsidies to biofuels production, distribution and consumption, as well as the subsidies to producers of key factor inputs. Such information, the GSI believes, is vital to understanding the cost-effectiveness of different policy options. Given the growing share of crops that are being diverted to energy production, the amount and form of support provided to biofuels is also relevant to issues relating to agriculture, such as trade and food security. This report follows a standardized outline common to all the reports in this series.
