G20 Scorecard of Fossil Fuel Funding: France

By Joachim Roth on November 9, 2020

France ranks second out of the G20 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member countries due to its strong commitments and relatively low levels of support for coal, oil, and gas production per unit of GDP. However, France continues to heavily support fossil fuel-based power through state-owned enterprise (SOE) investments and consumers of fossil fuels through tax expenditures. In addition, progress in ending support has been very poor, with France increasing public finance to fossil fuels by 87% relative to the 2014–2016 average.
