Climate disruption/COP21/America’s Clean Power Plan

Published on August 4, 2015
Communiqué issued by the Presidency of the Republic

Paris, August 4, 2015

The French President salutes the courage of President Obama, who has announced the finalization of America’s Clean Power Plan. This plan is a milestone in the decarbonization of America’s economy. It marks a break with the past by setting a target, for the first time, to reduce CO2 emissions in energy production.

It makes a major contribution to the success of the Paris climate change conference.

France is going to continue coordinating all initiatives, particularly at the United Nations General Assembly in New York in September, so that nations – especially the most developed ones – shoulder their responsibilities./.
