Our current trajectory

France has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 18% between 1990 and 2017. However, this decrease is largely due to the contraction of its industrial activity after the 2008 crisis, which lead to the disappearance or offshoring of 15% of French industry. Meanwhile, emissions have stagnated in the agricultural and construction sectors, and increased in the transport sector.
Taking these facts and the rate at which we are currently reducing our GHG emissions into account, it becomes clear that we are not on track to fulfil our commitments to cut emissions by 40% by 2030.
On a global scale, GHG emissions are on the rise: they have increased by 64% between 1990 and 2017.
