Civil Society Organisations for energy efficiency and sustainable transport

  1. 1. Civil Society Organisations for energy efficiency and sustainable transport Civil Society Organisation Platform on Sustainable Consumption and Production Presented by: Satu Lähteenoja UNEP / Wuppertal Institute Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production
  2. 2. Sustainable consumption and production approaches let us mind the planetary limits Countries with high footprint per capita Per capita consumption (no. of planets) Resource-efficient consumption & shift to sustainable lifestyles 1 Development through leapfrogging high-impact consumption patterns Time Countries with low footprint per capita Source: Adapted from Wuppertal Institute, Fair Future Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 2
  3. 3. The challenge of Sustainable Consumption & Production Focus on food&drink, Others mobility and housing: Housing Together these impact areas account for approximately 70-80% of environmental impacts arising from all products over their life cycles. Impact categories thereby range from global warming, acidification, photochemical ozone formation to Mobility Food & eutrophication.* Drink *Source: EIPRO Study 2006, NAMEA Study 2006, WI 1998 Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 3
  4. 4. To achieve a fair share of carbon emissions per capita, change of consumption and production patterns is needed Currently 80 million Germans emit as much CO2 as 700 million Africans Countries by emissions . United States 19.8 Australia 18 Finland 13 Germany 9.8 Japan 9.7 UK 9.4 South Africa 7.8 Chile 3.7 China 3.2 Egypt 2 India 1.19 Zimbabwe 0.89 Chad 0.03 0 5 10 15 20 25 Metric tones of Estimated maximum emission CO2-equivalent per capita (2003) per capita allowed for sustainable living on earth Source: US Department of Energy’s Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 4
  5. 5. Sustainable consumption and production is closely linked to climate change mitigation challenge in private transport area Energy efficiency potential during use of private transport vehicles Use phase is the most important lever for change in private road transport ! CO2 emissions over the life-cycle of a vehicle Source: WWF-UK Evidence Base 2006 Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 5
  6. 6. Rebound Effect in Mobility Three-quarters of journeys travelled in EU-25 are made by cars, while 80% of the world population has no access to motor vehicles yet. (EC, 2006; EU-UNEP, 2005). Increase in car travel outweights efficiency gain! Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 6
  7. 7. We need to act - together Civil Society Business Government “Participation of all actors in society is needed to achieve sustainable consumption and production . None of these actors can change unsustainable patterns alone, but together they can form a so-called triange of change. Actors are ready to change their behaviour if they know that others are doing their bit.“ UK Sustainable Consumption Roundtable, 2006 Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 7
  8. 8. The role of CSOs Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 8
  9. 9. CSO Platform on SCP (DelibProcessSCP) Identifying research needs and designing elements of deliberative processes on SCP in the demand areas food, housing and mobility To provide a dialogue platform that can give CSOs a space for Objective identifying research needs and influencing political decisions on SCP. It will focus on major impact areas of food and drink, housing Scope and mobility that are responsible for 70% of environmental damage in the EU. • Base line report (trends, drivers, impacts within high impact consumption, as well as current CSO activities backed up by interviews, innovative and Activities creative action areas towards SCP) • Launch conference, Impact area workshops, Closing Conference, Strategic Summary Workshop of Policy Feedback • Online dialogue platform • UNEP/Wuppertal Institute Centre on SCP (CSCP) Partners • Regional Environmental Centre (REC) • Centre for Sustainable Design (CfSD) Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 9

  12. 12. Structure of the workshop 10.20 - 11.20 Panel discussion: How to reach sustainablity in the mobility sector? Aspects from civil society, research and government Short presentations from the panellists followed by questions and answers of the participants. 11.20 – 11.50 Let your voice be heard - What else is needed to reach energy-efficient Mobility? An interactive brainstorming with the world café method. Topics: What kind of policy instruments are needed? What is the role of CSOs and EESC? 11.50 Reporting back from the world café tables Closing & next steps: Philippe Galiay, European Commission, DG Research Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 12

  14. 14. World cafe: What else is needed to reach sustainable lifestyles in mobility? Table 1: What kind of policy instruments are needed to promote sustainable mobility? Sub-questions: Which existing policy instruments should be promoted? What kind of new instruments are needed? Facilitator: Eva Csobod, REC Hungary Table 2: What should CSOs do to promote sustainable mobility? Sub-questions: which existing CSO actions are efficient? Where should civil society have the main focus in the future? Facilitator: Peter Szuppinger, REC Hungary Table 3: What is the role of European institutions (such as EESC) in promoting sustainable mobility? Sub-questions: What the EESC can do itself? How should European institutions support civil society to take more action? Facilitator: Sven Dammann, EESC Satu Lätheenoja Wednesday September 23, 2009 www.scp-network.net 14
