The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) and the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research Oslo (CICERO) host a conference on consumption-based approaches in climate policy in Mannheim on March 6 and 7, 2013. Despite the emergence of climate policy in different parts of the world, global emissions are still increasing. Against this background, there are calls for more comprehensive approaches to climate policy, which focus on emissions embodied in consumption. The overall goal of these approaches is to alter current emission consumption patterns and to initiate the transition towards a low carbon future. This two day event brings together selected renowned researchers in order to explore new directions in consumption-based approaches in climate policy. We invite interested participants (non-presenters) to register online no later than March 1, 2013. Please note that only a limited number of non-presenters will be able to attend. The conference fee is EUR 135, covering conference materials, coffee breaks, and lunch on both days.
