It starts at home? Climate policies targeting household consumption and behavioral decisions are key to low-carbon futures
Energy Research & Social Science
Investigates household emissions and opportunities for change in four European cities.
Mobility (air and road travel), food (meat and dairy) and heating are three largest energy consumption activities.
The greater the mitigation potential of an action, the less willing households are to implement them.
However, there are mitigation actions that households will consider, especially related to food (e.g. eating vegetarian more) and recycling.
People will act only if others are also acting.
