Publication of national low-carbon strategy indicators

Start
Nicolas Hulot announces the first publication of the 184 monitoring indicators of the National Low Carbon Strategy. An analysis of the indicators will provide answers to the following questions: Is France on the right emission reduction path? Is France committed to the right sectoral policies in order to comply with carbon budgets? What are the most critical recommendations, requiring increased efforts and/or an adjustment of the strategy?
 
Chis publication comes ahead of the revision of the strategy, which will set a new path for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by the end of 2018. In accordance with the commitments of the Climate Plan, this strategy will take into account the objective of carbon neutrality by 2050.
"The publication of these indicators will enable everyone to better understand the challenges of our national low-carbon strategy. The revision of this strategy will be in line with the measures that I will present at the end of January to accelerate the energy transition. said Nicolas Hulot.
 
In particular, these indicators place France's greenhouse gas emission reduction trajectories in context. They show that public policies in the areas of transport, buildings and forest-wood by the end of 2016 require very substantial reinforcements to achieve the desired ambition.
 
This is why, with the Climate Plan, the government has committed itself as early as July 2017 to strengthen measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions:
 
- By forecasting an accelerated increase in the price of carbon over the five-year period.
- Concerning transport,
1. by setting a target for the end of sales of vehicles that emit greenhouse gases in 2040,
2. by preparing the future of mobility in France with the Assises de la mobilité, held from September to December 2017.
- 4 billion dedicated to energy renovation, in particular thanks to the renovation plan launched on November 24 by Nicolas Hulot and Jacques Mézard.
 
From 13 November to 17 December 2017, the public was invited to make proposals via an online questionnaire to help inform the review of the low-carbon strategy. A summary of the contributions will be published in the first quarter of 2018 and will be given to elected officials, professionals, trade unions, NGOs and experts in charge of drawing up the new strategy, which is both ambitious and in line with France's commitments.
