Climate Change Description:As of July 2006, real estate developers and property managers must conduct energy efficiency analyses for all new construction. Under the new law, developers and property managers will inform potential buyers of a propertys energy consumption patterns in an "energy efficiency diagnoses." The document, to be included as an annex to all property sales, will also detail additional measures to limit energy use and reduce associated emissions. From 1 July 2007, property owners and management companies will be obliged to provide similar documentation to potential retners as an annex to rental leases. This "legal simplification law" aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from residential and commercial properties, currently accounting for one-third of Frances total emissions.
