  1. Sustainable Automobile Transport

    Sustainable Automobile Transport

    Lisa Ryan, Hal Turton
    Transport, and in particular road transport, represents a significant global threat to long-term sustainable development, and is one of the fastest-growing consumers of final energy and sources of greenhouse gas emissions. In this book, long-term energy–economy–environment scenarios are used to identify the key technological developments required to address the challenges passenger car transport poses to climate change mitigation and energy security. It also considers possible targets for policy support and examines some of the elements that contribute to the significant levels of uncertainty – particularly social and political conditions. The book then builds on this long-term scenario analysis with a broad review of recent empirical examples of relevant policy implementation to identify near-term options for the passenger transportation sector which may promote a shift towards a more sustainable transport system over the longer term.

  2. Corporate Governance of Sustainability

    Corporate Governance of Sustainability

    Edited by Raimund Bleischwitz
    This book considers corporate governance of sustainability from a co-evolutionary perspective. It explores the linkages between pro-active approaches at the corporate level, market-based incentives and environmental networks involving various actors. Relevant theory on corporate governance, competition, market failures and regulatory tools is also examined. The authors go on to present an assessment methodology suitable for empirical network analysis at the meso-level, and demonstrate its application using eight case studies. Based on the findings of this research Raimund Bleischwitz and his team draw important conclusions for policy analysis and sustainability assessments and the actors involved. Learn More

  3. Climate and Trade Policy

    Climate and Trade Policy

    Edited by Carlo Carraro, Christian Egenhofer
    The difficulty of achieving and implementing a global climate change agreement has stimulated a wide range of policy proposals designed to favour the participation of a large number of countries in a global cooperative effort to control greenhouse gas emissions. This significant book analyses the viability of controlling climate change through a set of regional or sub-global climate agreements rather than via a global treaty. Learn More

  4. Achieving a Sustainable Global Energy System

    Achieving a Sustainable Global Energy System

    Leo Schrattenholzer, Asami Miketa, Keywan Riahi, Richard Alexander Roehrl
    Sustainable development and global climate change have figured prominently in scientific analysis and international policymaking since the early 1990s. This book formulates technology strategies that will lead to environmentally sustainable energy systems, based on an analysis of global climate change issues using the concept of sustainable development. The authors focus on environmentally compatible, long-term technology developments within the global energy system, while also considering aspects of economic and social sustainability. Learn More

  5. Eco-Efficiency, Regulation and Sustainable Business

    Eco-Efficiency, Regulation and Sustainable Business

    Edited by Raimund Bleischwitz, Peter Hennicke
    This book presents important new research on applied eco-efficiency concepts throughout Europe. The aim of eco-efficiency is to achieve market-based measures of environmental protection, in order to enhance the prospects for sustainable development and achieve positive economic and ecological benefits.

  6. Firms, Governments and Climate Policy

    Firms, Governments and Climate Policy

    Edited by Carlo Carraro, Christian Egenhofer
    This book analyses the policy mixes that provide the best possible incentives for firms and governments to act on climate change and sign up to international climate agreements. In doing so, the authors address a multitude of related issues including the linkages between flexible mechanisms and voluntary agreements; regulation and taxation; the opportunities and barriers of the Kyoto Protocol for industry; and the incentives for firms to undertake climate-related R&D and investments. As well as illustrating the environmental benefits and cost-effectiveness of alternative policy mixes in reducing GHG emissions, the authors also offer sensible policy prescriptions for increasing the numbers of countries that ratify and implement climate agreements.
