The spectrum of rules for a carbon-neutral and sustainable city - Observatory for a sustainable city - Paris

The 3rd Paris Climate Air Energy Plan, adopted on 21st March 2018, aims to turn Paris into a carbon-neutral city by 2050. This publication is a contribution in the form of a tool kit so that this objective can be reached.

Apur has worked on environmental thematics since the beginning of 2000. Based on its work on the urban built up context, on energy, water, climate and new modes of constructing the city, it wanted to draw up the spectrum of rules to contribute to attaining this objective.

To take full advantage of what exists, to expand massively the rehabilitation of buildings, prioritising low carbon materials, exploiting local resources, optimising each greened square metre, enhancing the water cycle and sharing the seven major chapters that make up this spectrum of rules. So many possibilities for accompanying the necessary expansion of regulatory documents in order to move towards a carbon climate framework.
