The Global Emissions Impact of Irish Consumption
What do our consumption patterns mean for global emissions and how can we reduce our global climate impact?
This event will present recent ESRI research funded by the EPA on the estimated global emissions from Irish consumption and the potential use of a green VAT to reduce consumption-based emissions.
This will be followed by an expert panel discussion on how we can incentivise Irish consumers to change their consumption patterns to reduce their global emissions impact.
