  1. The Economics of Energy and the Production Process

    The Economics of Energy and the Production Process

    Guido Buenstorf
    The economics of energy has been a contested issue over the past century. Although it has not figured prominently in mainstream economics, numerous alternative proposals have called for energy to play a more central role in economic theory. In this highly original and enlightening volume, Guido Buenstorf develops a new conceptual approach to the economics of energy which originates from recent advances in evolutionary economics.

  2. Institutional Change for Sustainable Development

    Institutional Change for Sustainable Development

    Robin Connor, Stephen Dovers
    Institutional Change for Sustainable Development presents a flexible, accessible, yet robust conceptual framework for comprehending institutional dimensions of sustainability, emphasising the complexity of institutional systems, and highlighting the interdependence between policy learning and institutional change. This framework is applied and developed through the analysis of five significant arenas of institutional and policy change: environmental policy in the EU; New Zealand’s landmark Resource Management Act; strategic environmental assessment; emerging National Councils for Sustainable Development; and transformative property rights instruments. From these explorations, key principles for institutional change are identified, including the institutional accommodation of a sustainability discourse, the interdependence of normative and institutional change; reiteration and learning; integration in policy and practice; subsidiarity; and legal change.

    Waste in Ecological Economics

    Edited by Katy Bisson, John Proops

Therefore, a crucial issue in modern waste management is the understanding of attitudes towards waste. This book examines the ecological economics approach to waste, its conceptualisation and management. Learn More

  18. Sustainability in Action

    Sustainability in Action

    Edited by Jörg Kohn, John M. Gowdy, Jan van der Straaten
    Sustainability is a process that demands cooperation rather than competition. Sustainability in Action offers a variety of case studies that show how industry, managers, policy decision makers, regional planners and stakeholders cope with the sustainability concept and what it means to them. Although any decision is made in very specific environments, some general guidelines, methods and tools are available to link business with sustainability. The distinguished authors, from a rich diversity of backgrounds, present case studies from their own unique perspectives of the concept of sustainability. Each chapter contains several different approaches to its subject and these can include possibly technical and ethical views, the application of physical indicators or social parameters and even a holistic view. The case studies show that no universal framework for sustainability exists and that any process or conflict has unique features requiring specific answers. Learn More
