Household and economy wide impacts of changing environmental behaviours - EV0406

Defra’s forthcoming Environmental Behaviours framework draws up an initial set of behaviours that could help contribute to sustainability. These 12 “headline” behaviour goals have been identified (from the four main consumption clusters of food and drink, personal travel, homes and household products and travel tourism) against which progress can be monitored and evaluated over time. This study aims to learn more about the direct, indirect impacts and economy wide impacts that could occur as a result of achieving wide uptake of these behaviours.
