Macron’s plan

Macon’s bill passed on the national assembly. The bill states, it is compulsory to travel by train to the place where it takes a maximum of two and half hours to travel by plane inside France if there is a train service.

And will increase the use of electric vehicles instead of oil. To reduce power consumption, Multi-storey buildings that use a lot of electricity need to re-plan and change the design.

In 2017, Macron promised to hold a referendum on the environment. Nevertheless, a French weekly reported on May 11, 2021, the plan has been forced to postpone for now.



Because, according to the constitution of France, both chambers of the parliament need to approve the referendum. However, the majority of the Republican Party in the upper house Senate is against Macron. Macron could not reach an agreement with them on the environmental referendum. Although he said, the decision of the referendum is not being canceled.

To protect the environment

France has taken a COVID -19 package worth Tk.100 billion. Even there, the measure will take to reduce the smoke emitted from vehicles. Besides, by 2030, the amount of greenhouse gas emissions will reduce 55% than that in 1990. Last month, the EU decided to continue with the goal of ‘climate neutral’ by 2050.
