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.
