Carbon reporting in France
In France, since the Grenelle II law (2010), the Environmental Code (article L229-25) states that all private organizations (employing 500 persons in mainland or 250 persons overseas) and all public organizations (employing 250 persons or spanning a population of 50,000) must perform their carbon assessment. Since 2016, it must be published on ADEME's dedicated platform. It must include Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions (Scope 3 being only recommended) and must be performed at least once every 4 years for private organizations and once every 3 years for public ones. The report must be submitted along with an action plan to reduce the assessed emissions.
