This project aims to estimate consumption-based greenhouse gas emissions across the UK at neighbourhood level longitudinally. Emissions are estimated from expenditure estimates using an environmentally extended multi-regional input-output analysis. Thereafter, spatial and temporal emission patterns can be investigated. This enables an assessment of the impacts of the 2007/08 economic recession, sustainability behaviour change policy, and local infrastructure developments on household carbon emissions. Moreover, relationships between geodemographic factors and greenhouse gas emissions in the UK can be evaluated.
