Key figures on climate
France, Europe and Worldwide


Avant propos

This publication provides an overview of the main data relating to the climate issue: the reality of climate change and its impacts, greenhouse gas emissions at global, European and national level, as well as the sectoral breakdown of these emissions and their evolution, and an estimate of France's carbon footprint. A final section reviews the main climate policies implemented to meet these challenges.

Wherever possible, the data is provided over a long period, in order to assess trends, with the most recent year available being used.

Several data sets, presented graphically in this document, can also be downloaded from the SDES website.
