Target 1 : Reduce GHG emissions by at least 40% by 2020, compared with 1990 levels.
Target 2 : Renewable energy to account for 32% of its energy mix by 2030.
France has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 18% between 1990 and 2017. However, this decrease is largely due to the contraction of our 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 : there has been a 64% increase between 1990 and 2017.
