Carbon dioxide emissions in France 2000-2017 France’s carbon dioxide emissions decreased from 2005 until 2015, before they started slightly to rise again, reaching 320 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emitted in 2017.  
CO2 emissions in France

   As of 2016, almost a third of carbon dioxide emissions in France were caused by the traffic of passenger cars, according to a report from the International Energy Agency. In addition to this, CO2 emissions from household activities were estimated to reach about 124 million tons for the year 2017. Among residential carbon dioxide emissions, the large majority came from residential heating: 82 percent during 2016.  

Air pollution concerns in France

   Until 2010, the number of deaths attributable to air pollution decreased significantly, before increasing again to around 17.5 thousand in 2016. Throughout all age groups, the impact of environmental pollution on health was one of the main concerns expressed by French surveyed on ecology and sustainable development in 2018. Despite the goals set by the Paris Agreement of 2015 during the 21th Conference of the Parties (COP21) to tackle greenhouse gases emissions, more than half of French respondents of a survey in 2016 appeared to consider that this agreement would only help reduce greenhouse gas emissions to a certain extent.
