Sustainable consumption and production requires significant changes in the way production processes function, supply chains are organised, distribution and retail networks operate and consumer needs are met. This paper presents a methodology for identifying the carbon emissions ‘induced’ directly and indirectly in the economy as a result of the final demand for consumer goods and services. It presents the results of a pilot exercise for the UK economy and discusses the implications for manufacturing and for the development of new, more sustainable business models.

This talk is part of the ELCF - Engineering for a Low Carbon Future (seminar series) series.
