About this book

Households are one of the main sources of waste and of other environmental impacts. This is a study of domestic consumption. Drawing on empirical research largely from The Netherlands, it takes households as consumer units and examines the entire household metabolism. This includes the way domestic demand can influence where and how goods and services are produced, resource flows through households, and the differential impacts of different lifestyles. It shows both what would constitute sustainable domestic consumption and how far there is to go to achieve this.

Contents

Household metabolism in the context of sustainability and environmental quality; analysis of household metabolic flows; household energy requirements; household developments in Europe and in The Netherlands in particular - empirical observations; residential space consumption in The Netherlands; from household metabolism to urban metabolism - ecological renewal of neighbourhoods; household consumption, quality of life and environmental problems; economic aspects of household metabolism; public policy effects on household metabolism; diagnosing household metabolism.
