ADDRESSING THE REBOUND EFFECT IN POLICY - STAKEHOLDER MEETING WITH THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION DG ENVIRONMENTftp://ftp.cordis.europa.eu/pub/fp7/ict/docs/ssai/beaulieu_en.pdf
As part of the “Addressing the Rebound Effect” project, the European Commission is hosting this one day meeting in Brussels to discuss current thinking on the rebound effect and practical measures policy makers can use to counteract its negative environmental impacts where relevant. The Rebound Effect is an increase in consumption, which can occur as an unintended side-effect of the introduction of technology and policy instruments aimed at environmental efficiency improvements, in particular where gains bring reduced costs.
The project has now reached the interim stage and the project consortium team Global View Sustainability Services (GVSS) in association with Bio Intelligence Services (BIO) and Ecologic Institute has completed a state of the art review on rebound effect knowledge and practice to inform the European Commission on how to recognise and counteract rebound effects in environmental policy. Expert views and evidence from over 60 stakeholders from the EU, USA, China and India have been brought to the Commission’s attention. This stakeholder meeting aims to discuss the project findings to date with a view to informing the European Commission policy, research agendas and guidelines on the Rebound Effect.
This is a key event to influence the European Commission’s policy, research agendas and forthcoming guidance on the Rebound Effect.
There is no fee to attend this conference. Attendees must cover their own travel related expenses. You can also “attend” by video/tele conference.
