Books Info:

The Earthscan Reader on Sustainable Consumption free pdf Politically, intellectually and socially, sustainable consumption is a controversial concept. Consumption drives our economies and defines our lives:1000making it sustainable is an enormous and essential challenge. It was a key subject covered at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002, which set in place a 10-year programme of effort by national governments to develop strategies for sustainable consumption and production. The problem of how to influence consumer behaviour in the direction of more sustainable choices continues to challenge both opinion formers and policy makers alike. This book provides a coherent synthesis of key contributions to the literature on consumption and sustainability, comprising a substantive collection of selected papers and extracts from books, journals and institutional publications. Presented with a comprehensive introductory overview written by the editor, the Reader also provides an invaluable 'route map' through the complex intellectual terrain relevant to the pursuit of sustainable consumption.
