Measure your carbon footprint

France will be used as a case study to illustrate the environmental impact of individual consumption throughout this section.

In France, your average consumer’s yearly carbon footprint is 11 metric tons of CO2. This number accounts for the total consumption of the French population, including the CO2 generated by administrations, institutions, and imports. If we are to limit global warming to +2°C by 2100, each person should emit between 1.6 and 2.8 tons per year – accounting for demographic changes and following an equal split of the total amount of CO2 between all inhabitants.
