The French state and its population invest €84 billion per year in the energy transition. According to I4CE figures, an additional €30 billion is needed to make this transition a success, not forgetting the transformation of the agricultural and forestry sectors and adaptation to the consequences of climate change. Invest more, but also invest better: the French State spends more than €50 billion a year on assets that are currently subject to global warming, and will be in future, without systematically assessing their resilience to tomorrow’s climate.
I4CE works closely with public policymakers and stakeholders in a trusted third-party role, providing free data on public climate investments and finance. It also assesses the effectiveness of implemented public policies, particularly the effectiveness of public financing.
