    Nyckelord :Sustainable Development; Emotions; Coping strategies; Climate change; Students; Grounded theory;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change is happening. Yet this phenomenon does not only concern the environment, but also has various notable and important psychological implications for individuals in particular and society in general. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Eco-efficiency in Swedish dairy farms : incorporating sustainability into the measure of eco-efficiency

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Economics

    Författare :Elin Martinsson; [2020]
    Nyckelord :dairy farms; eco-efficiency; environmental pressures; planetary boundaries;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis introduces a novel method to incorporate absolute values of GHG emissions into the measure of eco-efficiency. The aim is to assess eco-efficiency in Swedish dairy farms and adjusting the scores towards a threshold of absolute levels of GHG emissions using the proposed method. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The Nuclear Option : A Global Sustainability Appraisal of Civil Nuclear Energy

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för byggnadsteknik, energisystem och miljövetenskap

    Författare :Sebastian Arnström; [2020]
    Nyckelord :nuclear power; solar power; wind power; sustainability; sustainable development; sustainable energy development; sustainability of nuclear power; nuclear accidents; nuclear weapons proliferation; nuclear fuel depletion;

    Sammanfattning : Energy production systems are essential for human progress. They fuel the technologies that underpin economic growth and are prerequisite for efficient food production, education and healthcare. On the flip side, they also incur substantial eco-social costs. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Moving from shareholder to stakeholder value : an investigation into blockchain and its ability to govern common pool resources and incentivize collaborative behavior

  5. 5. To waste, or to resource? A comparative Life Cycle Assessment of recovering bottom ash from waste incineration for use in road construction in Malmö.

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Författare :Fynn Peter Hauschke; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Life Cycle Assessment LCA ; waste incineration; bottom ash; secondary material; road construction; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The low-carbon benefits and emissions savings from circular economy (CE) strategies are not yet well understood, yet are crucial for global development within Planetary Boundaries. Using the mineral fraction of waste incinerator bottom ash (MIBA) as construction material in road construction is one application of a CE strategy that could lead to environmental gains by substituting energy-intensive primary material and avoiding its alternative disposal in a landfill.
