Revision of the Environmental Protection Plan (PPA) in the Arve valley

The Arve valley is one of the most important transport axis between the French Alpes, Switzerland and Italy. Due to the numerous trucks passing by the valley every day, the place has become one of the most polluted in France and was one of the first ZPA environmental zones of the country. Its Environmental Protection Plan was decided in 2012 and came to its end in the beginning of the current year. This was the moment to summarise the achievements of the past five years in terms of environmental activities. The principle measures were built around three sectors: wood-heating systems, traffic and industry. The results will form the basis of the following PPA.
