Consumption based approach to tackling climate change

  1. 1. <ul><li>Capital Consumption : a consumption based approach to tackling climate change and the transition to sustainable consumption and production in London </li></ul><ul><li>Sue Riddlestone Executive Director BioRegional London Sustainable Development Commissioner </li></ul>
  2. 2. Introducing BioRegional BioRegional is an entrepreneurial charity which invents and delivers solutions for sustainability Established in 1994, 40 staff , 8 associated companies & 3 sister organisations in China, South Africa and North America
  3. 4. Sustainable Consumption and Production <ul><li>Can we choose a product or service with a lower impact, more durable? </li></ul><ul><li>Achieving more with less </li></ul><ul><li>Do we need this commodity? </li></ul><ul><li>Can we use less of it or reduce waste? </li></ul>
  4. 5. BioRegional projects: demonstrating SCP is possible BioRegional projects and companies - Local Paper for London (93% EF) - Local charcoal (85% transport CO2) - BedZED eco-village (71% personal CO2)
  5. 6. What would SCP look like for the whole of London? <ul><li>We modelled using REAP software (developed by Stockholm Environment Institute, York, UK) </li></ul><ul><li>Material flow accounting (PRODCOM data organised by consumption patterns) </li></ul><ul><li>High level data complements LCA </li></ul><ul><li>CO2, GHG & eco-footprint </li></ul>
  6. 7. Benchmarking London’s CO2 emissions
  7. 8. Why count consumption emissions? <ul><li>Export of CO2 emissions </li></ul><ul><li>Paints a truer picture (In UK production shows fall 8.5% consumption shows increase 19%) </li></ul><ul><li>We take responsibility rather than pass wholly on to poorer countries </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing recognition Lord Stern </li></ul><ul><li>Only one atmosphere </li></ul>
  8. 9. Production emissions & consumption emissions
  9. 10. What scale of reductions do we need? 9% annually to stay within UK carbon budget Our UK carbon budget is 2.4 billion tonnes till 2050
  10. 11. Modelling a low carbon London Eight sectors modelled
  11. 12. Scenario modelled against BAU <ul><li>Scenario modelled against business as usual which assumes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>projected population growth in London (ONS 2006) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>but per capita emissions stay the same </li></ul></ul>
  12. 13. Renewable electricity grid: cross cutting measure 50% renewable electricity 95% renewable grid electricity by 2030
  13. 14. 4 Benchmarking London emissions
  14. 15. Household energy (22%) Is achieved with all CCAP measures + 95% renewable grid by 2030 & more microgen
  15. 16. Emissions from personal transport (20%)
  16. 17. Personal transport Personal transport (22%) CCAP

  18. 19. Food (10% CO2 or 19% GHG)
  19. 20. CO2 arising from consumer goods (12%)
  20. 21. Consumer goods (12%)
  21. 22. Longer lasting clothes & floor coverings? Classic Well made Low laundry impact Fairtrade Eco-impact reduced
  22. 23. B&Q: New models for retail? <ul><li>Reducing impact of own operations </li></ul><ul><li>Helping customers to reduce their impact </li></ul>
  23. 24. Built Infrastructure (9%) Reduce new
  24. 25. Housing Infrastructure (5%)
  25. 26. Public sector (11%)
  26. 27. CO2 emissions from private services (11%)
  27. 28. Private services (11%)
  28. 29. Combined results of measures modelled
  29. 30. We can do it, but will we do it? <ul><li>90% Co2 cut & the measures modelled are achievable: Energy saving, renewable energy, design to reduce need to travel, more walking & cycling, buying fewer, higher quality, resource efficient & durable goods, cut waste, eat less meat & dairy, fly less. </li></ul><ul><li>It would bring a healthier and better quality lifestyle </li></ul><ul><li>But it requires a shift in consumption patterns, business models & human behaviour. How can we resolve this? </li></ul><ul><li>Convince economists to convince business & politicians? </li></ul>
