Volume of carbon dioxide emissions in France 2006-2018

Greenhouse gas emissions became a major issue for public opinion and the fight against climate change. That is why these gases, particularly carbon dioxide emissions, are closely monitored nowadays.

The volume of carbon dioxide emissions in France between 2006 and 2018 is represented here. In 2018, nearly 312 million tonnes of CO2 were emitted in France. it represents a decrease from 2006, when the volume amounted to about 380 million tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Europe’s emission volume exceeded four billion metric tons of CO2 in 2018. However, it was still below North America's and was four times lower than the CO2 emission volume of Asia-Pacific.

What sectors emit the most CO2?

While transportation generated more than a quarter of France's greenhouse gas emissions in 2016, other sectors had a major influence on French CO2 emissions.
For example, French energy usage emitted more than 320 million metric tons of greenhouse gases, including 315 million metric tons of CO2. This data goes way higher than other activities very present in France. Agriculture as a highly industrialized sector emitted only two million metric tons of CO2 out of 77 million metric tons of the total greenhouse gases.
