New order from France’s Conseil d’État binds the government to redress the nation’s air pollution levels by 31st March 2018.

The French government has nine months at their disposal to come up with a plan to settle air quality back within the legal limits, since the Conseil d’État established that the current measures to restore the amounts of nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter (PM10) concentrations to a safe number are insufficient.


The ruling follows the announcement that France will interdict the sale of diesel and petrol cars by 2040, and is similar to the one made in the UK, which requires the British government to deliver an air quality control plan.
