Overview

This timely volume discusses the debates concerning sustainable consumption and the environment.

Sustainable consumption stands as a wide objective that attracts a growing attention within sustainable development policy circles and academic research. The contributors examine a range of interesting and relevant case studies including: household energy consumption, sustainable welfare, Fair Trade, Oxfam Worldshops, cotton farming and consumer organizations.

Sustainable Consumption takes an interdisciplinary approach and is well-balanced, presenting theoretical debates as well as empirical evidence in order to:

  • characterize the basic problems and determiners of an evolution towards, and the obstacles to, more sustainable consumption patterns
  • produce knowledge on the profile of consumers sensitive, and not sensitive, to these issues
  • explore realistic modes of interaction and innovation for changes in which consumers are involved.

This text will be of interest to students and scholars of politics, environment studies and sociology.
