About this book

At the end of the 1990s with just 1% of the Earth's population, Britain uses 5% of the planet's capacity for carbon dioxide absorption, over 2% of its sustainable timber yield, and 5% of its sustainable aluminium yield. With the aid of figures and graphics, the authors present sustainable consumption levels for Britain as targets for government and business.
