File D source code Sustainable Consumption and Production: the way to a greener world
On July 16th 2008, the European Commission launched the Sustainable Consumption and Production package, which includes a legislative proposal and an Action Plan for sustainable development. The stakes are high, because if we do not change our means of consumption and production, in forty years time we will need double of the Earth's surface to be able to take in all our waste and CO2. We urgently need to reduce out environmental impact and consume in a more sustainable way.

Daviz Visualization D source code Share of global environmental footprints caused by different household consumption categories
The graph shows the share of direct and indirect environmental pressures (footprints) caused by EU-27 household consumption expenditure on different household consumption categories. The household consumption categories are developed from the Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP) single digit categories. COICOP one-digit includes12 broad categories of consumption. 3 pairs of COICOP categories (CP01& CP02; CP06 & CP10; CP07 & CP08) have been merged to give 9 categories in total. Shares are shown for 6 different environmental pressure types: GHGs, acidifying air pollutant emissions, tropospheric ozone precursors, material use, land and water.

Publication Environmental tax reform in Europe: implications for income distribution
Although environmental tax reforms (ETR) tend to improve incomes across society, they can have mild regressive impacts in that richer households gain more than poorer ones. Care is needed to design ETRs in ways that ensure that certain groups are able to benefit equally. ETR's overall benefits for the economy, environment and society are potentially significant. ETR should therefore be regarded as a key element in the policymaking toolkit for shifting to a green economy.
