Planning concrete measures for a just transition
The new French 2030 climate target of at least 50% greenhouse gas emission does not comply with a Paris-compatible 1.5°C trajectory. At least 65% emissions reductions by 2030 should be achieved for France to take its fair share of climate action. Also, the pathway to reach 2030 should be clear and quite ambitious. For now, France has a history of keeping the 2030 target but shifting the intermediary targets, which postpone public action.
France is significantly behind schedule in submitting its NECP (National Energy and Climate Plans) draft plan according to the European calendar and is expected to do so only in early next year. The revision process starts with framework law on energy and climate, financing and sectoral laws.
