Household consumption and the environment


This report analyses the environmental effects and environmental sustainability of household consumption in Europe. It builds and expands on thework done by OECD (OECD, 2002a; 2002b) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) on sustainable consumption (UNEP, 2001; 2003; 2004; 2005) and applies this analysis to Europe. The report provides substantial and analytical input to European policy processes on SCP. It also provides information and analysis for informed (conscious) consumers and citizens of EEA member countries.
