Effective policies for reducing climate emissions from consumption

164 visualizações

Publicada em

Presentation for municipal and regional employees working with reducing household climate emissions. What emissions to reduce (transport, food, and home energy), how (principles of policy design), and what works (research on effective policies and a smorgåsbord of good examples). Slides mostly in English.

Effective policies for reducing climate emissions from consumption

Växthusgasutsläpp från konsumtion i Sverige fördelat på kategorierna livsmedel, boende, transporter och shopping för privat konsumtion samt offentlig konsumtion, och regionalt mål till år 2030 (ton CO2 ekv/person/år). Källa: SCB51 Mellan år 2010 ochår 2015 minskade vårakonsumtionsbaserade utsläpp med drygt 10 procent. Det kan varamöjligt att halveraväxthusgasutsläppen från vår konsum-Persson, 2018.

  26. 26. Type of intervention Example To reduce emissions from aviation Nudges Customers “nudged” by being given preportioned meal sizes (Friis et al. 2017). Change defaults in government booking systems to better support booking train travel. Prompts Participant received text-message reminders to reduce red meat intake (Carfora et al. 2017). Display a note on a travel booking website asking customer to consider linked low-carbon options. Justification Carbon footprint information of meal choices displayed (Brunner et al. 2018). Make carbon footprint of flights versus other choices more explicit in transport mapping and travel booking systems to inform travel decision. Instructions Energy saving tips provided to households (Allcott 2011). Design government and institutional travel policies that prioritize travel-free meetings, then ground- based travel (von Arnold 2018; Tyndall Centre 2019). Provide instructions and technical support for institutional videoconferencing hardware and software to lower barriers for digital alternatives to air travel (Wynes and Donner 2018). Feedback Monthly energy statement mailed to households (Carroll et al. 2014). Give institution members individual reports about personal air travel, including a comparison to the average member of the department or with a sustainable global citizen’s annual carbon budget (with normative, encouraging messages for those whose emissions are below the average). Make public the emissions of public sector employees who generate above a certain threshold in air travel emissions. Similar social pressure interventions have been effective in encouraging behaviors like voting (Davenport et al. 2010) and reduced household energy consumption (Delmas and Lessem 2014). Social modeling Neighborhood leaders model a proenvironmental behavior. Highlight and promote local destinations, emphasizing the economic benefits for local economies (e.g., collaboration of Swedish universities, regional governments and tourist agencies that includes 100 vacations reachable by train, and carbon calculator for travel plans) (Klimatsmart Semester 2019). Promote positive stories of slow travel and its health, quality time, adventure, and other benefits. Attitudes and behavior have been changed by knowing someone who flies less or doesn’t fly (Westlake 2017). Increase institutional or leadership commitment to reduced flying. @KA_Nicholas Nicholas & Wynes, 2019. WRI Expert Perspective. Suggested policy experiments to reduce flying And many more!

  28. 28. Conclusions • What consumption-based climate emissions to reduce? • Transport: car- and flight-free • Food: Plant-based diet • Home: fossil-free energy, efficiency • How to reduce consumption-based emissions? • Improve efficiency; substitute consumption; reduce consumption • Diverse, comprehensive policy approach • Include key actors: government, industry, civil society • What works to reduce consumption-based emissions? • Focus on car-free: rewards, parking management, travel-free • Food: defaults, nudging, labels, goals/planning • Flying: we need policy experiments- please get in touch! @KA_Nicholas
