Sustainable Production and Consumption

The journal aims to provide a leading platform for publishing high-quality interdisciplinary papers on research and practice in this emerging field. It looks uniquely at the interactions between technology, consumption, and policy to help identify more-sustainable solutions for both production and consumption systems.

Papers from engineers, natural and social scientists as well as philosophers are invited and those at the interface between these disciplines are particularly encouraged. Types of articles published by the journal include original research, perspectives, short communications, policy, and review papers.

All papers should include some elements of life cycle thinking and should clearly demonstrate that they are addressing topics related to sustainable production and consumption. Note that papers on end-of-pipe treatment technologies are outside the scope.
