Plan Climat de la Métro


The local climate plan sets targets for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases for the years 2014, 2020 and 2050 on the territory of Grenoble Alpes Métropole which has committed to go beyond the European objectives. The second phase of the plan started by adopting a new charter consistent with global issues of climate and energy, in which all partners are invited to commit to quantitative targets for reducing emissions of GHG and energy consumption and promoting renewable energy.


After the results of the period 2004-2007, the Local Climate Plan has set the following objectives: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions of at least 20 % by 2020 compared to 2005 levels, by decreasing energy consumption per capita of 20 % and increasing renewable energy production in the territory to 16 % of the energy consumed (instead of 8 % in 2007). Take action on climate change adaptation, particularly to limit the effects of higher temperatures and low night-time cooling in some urban areas. Intermediate objectives are to decrease of at least 14 % greenhouse gas emissions of the territory by 2014 compared to 2005 levels, both for bigger emitters and for other sectors (residential, transport, tertiary, agriculture and small industry). In other words, the emissions will be under 2 million teqCO2/year. This objective means to be symbolically less than 5 teqCO2/year/capita in the area. As a reminder, Factor 4 corresponds to emissions below 2 teqCO2/year/capita in 2050.

Durée mise en œuvre

  • Start date: May 2005 
  • Duration: Still in progress


  • Activities:

The climate plan has three axis:

  1. Engage key stakeholders: the partnership approach, to mobilize the local actors around common objectives, and make their actions visible and coherent. By endorsing a charter of commitment for 2009-2014 they engage on a voluntary basis, by setting their own targets. The coordination, assistance and monitoring are provided with the assistance of the local agency for energy and climate. The observatory monitors consumption and emissions on the territory. All the partners meet in a forum every six months. The scientific council, composed of renowned experts in the fields of science, technology, economics, finance, sociology, urban planning and housing, advises the Metro for its policies to aim for the "Factor 4".
  2. Implement the action plan of the Metro: the internal process, to meet the commitments of the Metro. It is structured by the Cit'ergie label
  3. Engage citizens: the public process, to mobilize, support, inspire action for the citizens


  • Results:

The Metro has been awarded the Cit'ergie label in December 2007. This label rewards the local authority for the quality of its climate plan. The actions of the Metro are implemented in numerous fields:

  • own buildings and equipments
  • economic development
  • transport and mobility
  • housing
  • waste collection and treatment
  • wastewater treatment
  • natural areas
  • internal organization
  • urban planning and major projects
  • mobilization of local actors
