French conseil d'etat makes move to reduce PM10 levels

France has been one of the leading countries in illegal nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter (PM10) levels for a significant amount of time. France received a ‘final warning’ from Brussels in February to reduce its NO2 limits because it was continuously breaching EU NO2 regulations. As a result, the sustainability group ‘Friends of the Earth’ brought the case to the French Court to raise awareness of the situation. The case was then brought to the French Government as an order to implement a new strategy to lower NO2 levels. France’s most authoritative legal group, the Conseil d’État, adopted the case from the Court to ensure that action is taken. The goal is bring emissions below the longstanding limits that were set by the EU’s Ambient Air Quality Directive. There have been some positive developments, as the French Government has pledged to abolish sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2040.
