Sustainable Tourism in France
In April 2021, the French government approved the New Climate Bill which aims to support the ecological transition by helping France reach its 40% emission targets by 2030. A new procedure for awarding stars to hotels and other accommodation came into effect in April 2022, which includes 243 criteria and emphasizes sustainable development. The government is working to increase inter-regional connections to encourage train travel within the country. Bicycling is also gaining in popularity. The people of France are becoming more mindful of their impact on the environment!
