What is the THG-Quota?
The THG-Quota obliges mineral oil companies to offset the CO2 emissions caused by their fossil fuels. The reduction of CO2 emissions is set centrally by the federal government and increases every year. Since January 2022, owners of private and commercial electric vehicles can also benefit from the THG-Quota and receive money for the saved CO2 emissions. The reward does not constitute greenwashing by the automotive industry, instead it is a targeted promotion of electric mobility and climate protection in Germany.
