Description:In July 2008 the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) launched a new website targeted at reducing household carbon emissions. According to ADEME, 50% of France?s CO2 emissions come from households; the website is aimed at helping people make sustainable choices and reduce their individual CO2 emissions. The Agency advises that each citizen should cut their CO2 emissions by approximately three-fourths, to avoid exceeding the equivalent of 2 350 kg a year. The website presents information and advice on: finding "green" products; ways to cut emissions; how to make choices that induce businesses and government to reduce their emissions; and an explanation of ecological consumption. In addition, various links to other sites addressing issues of sustainable development and ecology are provided.
