      Subject: [GreenYes] Special issue of J. of Ind'l Ecol. on consumption

      Dear colleagues,
      The Journal of Industrial Ecology (JIE) has recently published a special issue on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) that I think would be of great interest to you. The papers of this issue are freely downloadable via:

      The special issue provides rigorous and comprehensive insight into the life-cycle impacts of consumption on the environment. Studies from Switzerland, the UK and Australia discuss how income and lifestyle influence impacts of consumption. This work confirms earlier findings published in the
      JIE that 70 to 80 percent of environmental impacts are attributable to mobility, food, and the home (and related energy use).  The special issue also reports on attempts to nudge consumers towards more sustainable consumption patterns. Papers discuss the role of context, social practices, informative instruments, etc.

      The special issue is based in part on papers from a major European-funded network project on sustainable consumption called Sustainable Consumption Research Exchanges (SCORE!). The Special Issue on Sustainable Consumption and Production of JIE is published as Volume 14 Issue 1 (January/February 2010). It was edited by:
      • Arnold Tukker (TNO, Netherlands)
      • Maurie Cohen (New Jersey Institute of Technology, US)
      • Klaus Hubacek (Leeds University, UK)
      • Oksana Mont (Lund University, Sweden)
