Transition to zero emissions growth
The pursuit of ‘zero emissions growth’ offers the opportunity for economies to expand and develop while still protecting the environment. Without action, the expanding world economy will emit levels of carbon dioxide that leave little hope of halting climate change. An important component of our research is to better understand the economic, technological, behavioural and institutional factors that will assist the transition to zero emissions growth. This research includes analysis of the transition to low-carbon energy systems, strategic interactions and interdependencies between firms in green industrial networks, changes to dietary habits and the governance mechanisms at the local, national and international level.
