Today, we only talk about this: economic and ecological driving, "clean" vehicles, eco-friendly cars.
The transport sector is strongly responsible for increasing CO2 emissions in France, as well as emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases. The reduction in vehicle emissions is a fundamental lever in the fight against climate change.
Even if you do not have the means to invest in a new model of car less polluting: in everyday life you can already act to contribute to the protection of the environment. Driving without polluting too much or consuming too much fuel is possible! But do you know how? Do you have good reflexes?
It must be known that the reduction of pollutant emissions is first and foremost due to changes in behavior. And yes, technology is not everything: the participation of everyone is essential to make a difference! But in principle, you already know it. Certainly you have become used, for a long time, to sort your bins, to use shopping bags and cloth bags to do your shopping and to do your utmost to protect the environment. So, why not do the same thing when you're driving?
Of course, the best solution is to avoid getting behind the wheel (and betting on public transport, cycling or .. our own feet when possible), when possible. But sometimes, the use of the car is essential. But then, how?
To help you ride a car without polluting too much, you will find in this file the rules of an ecological and respectful conduct of nature and the environment. We interviewed an expert: Patrick Coroller, eco-driving specialist with ADEME (Agency for the Environment and Energy Management), who revealed to us all the secrets of the ecological path. .
