Turkey will see its greenhouse gas emissions continue their steady rise of recent years without concrete actions to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy sources, according to a new OECD report.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of congestion pricing on the demand for clean transport modes. It draws on an empirical analysis of the effect of Milan’s congestion charge on the use of bike sharing. The analysis indicates that congestion pricing increases daily bike-sharing use by at least 5% in the short term.
The OECD releases the meeting report, and two background documents: Considerations and Criteria for Sustainable Plastics from a Chemical Perspective and Technical Tools and Approaches in the Design of Sustainable Plastics. The main focus of the Global Forum was the design stage of plastic products, and how chemical selection decisions influence environmental and health outcomes at various stages of the product lifecycle.
Australia has made some progress replacing coal with natural gas and renewables in electricity generation yet remains one of the most carbon-intensive OECD countries and one of the few where greenhouse gas emissions (excluding land use and forestry) have risen in the past decade. The country will fall short of its 2030 emissions target without a major effort to move to a low-carbon model, according to a new OECD report.
La responsabilité élargie des producteurs (REP) est une approche politique visant à accroître la récupération et le recyclage des déchets. Les systèmes de REP visent à responsabiliser les producteurs à l’égard des incidences de leurs produits sur l’environnement, de la conception à la fin de leur cycle de vie. Ce rapport se concentre sur le libre-échange des producteurs, que l’augmentation rapide des ventes en ligne a exacerbée.
At a time when nationalism is rising and individual countries are facing a growing array of threats, it is critical that we recognize a shared and unprecedented global challenge: We need to double our infrastructure in the next decade to meet global development needs, while achieving a systematic shift away from business-as-usual, carbon-intensive options to low-emissions, resilient infrastructure, to avoid catastrophic climate change.
