Sobriety plan: how companies can help save energy

By French government
October 2022

On October 6th 2022, the French government adopted a series of recommendations in order to reduce gas, electricity, and fuel consumption by 10% in two years.

The Energy Sobriety Plan concerns different sectors and players including: buildings, transport, the State, local authorities, individual households, sports, cultural sites and corporations.

Purposeful business travel and switching to low-carbon transport modes are some of the conditions to stick to the energy efficiency plan. The French government demands corporations to reduce flights: air travel should only be considered when the trip by train surpasses 4 hours one way and 6 hours in a round trip. Prioritising, in that way, the use of rail when possible for business displacements. 

With remote work and videoconferencing, companies now have plenty of choices to take action.
