Sammanfattning : As an effort in combating climate change, the Icelandic government has set the ambitious goal of a carbon-neutral economy before the year 2040. Meanwhile, projections show continuing growth in private household consumption. LÄS MER
4. Dynamic Technology-Adjusted Consumption-Based Accounting: National emission responsibilities based on current consumption patterns and production technologiesMagister-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen
Sammanfattning : Effective global emission mitigation policies require accurate guidance in terms of a fair and comparable emission accounting framework. This thesis presents an indicator that acknowledges countries’ technological differences as well as intertemporal capital dynamics. LÄS MER
5. The Environmental Kuznets Curve: Examining the relationship between income and technology-adjusted consumption-based CO2 emissionsMaster-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen
