Indicators for the environmental pressure of consumption

By Jesper Munksgaard, Mette Wier, Manfred Lenzen and Christopher Dey

Abstract

An integrated input-output model is a useful tool for tracing environmental impacts of consumption. By including impacts originating from production layers of infinite order, the methodology is highly relevant for studies operating in a life-cycle context. In this work we show how the input-output approach can be used to enumerate the problem of sustainable consumption. From our recent as well as ongoing research, we present examples of key indicators such as CO2 emissions, and extend the analysis to a range of spatial scales, from the national to the household level. Finally, we discuss the policy relevance of the different indicators
