Cyrille François works on the environmental issues associated with the daily mobility of people by developing systemic approaches.
He is interested in mobility, not in terms of the simple use of a technology but as a social reality anchored in a specific territory. His interests also cover the environmental impacts associated with mobility. He uses life-cycle assessment (LCA), which takes into account the construction phases and end of life of modes of transport and their infrastructures.

Life-cycle assessment is a method to assess the environmental impacts of buildings and infrastructures throughout their life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials through to their end-of-lifetime handling.

Tramway is among transport services that are analysed
Mobilité
The environmental performance of mobility systems is linked to energy consumption, emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases and the effects of disruption and fragmentation of natural habitats due to the construction

Project
The trips generated by a neighbourhood are quantified and characterised using models for forecasting transport demand. The environmental impacts associated with these trips are then estimated using an LCA-type approach
