Le Monde has developed an interesting database of Emmanuel Macron’s policies related to climate change. The paper identified many themes & reviewed the French government’s decisions on the matter, using a visual gimmick to represent their impact.

You can explore them by keywords, or via this article which condenses the main takeaways.

The interactive database format is nothing new — but still rarely used by French publishers, let alone well-used. This time, Le Monde did a real work of information design, and the feature can be read with different levels of details.

And it’s always nice to see a national paper using data journalism to put a new spin on an important policy debate — something that the NYT or the Washington Post have mastered for many years.
