Current world population is just over seven billion and expected to reach nine billion before 2050. Increasing affluence in the developing and transition countries where population is growing most is now resulting in a wave of “new consumers”. This is important as in the developed world the main drivers for the level and growth of environmental pressures are said to be final consumption and affluence. Technology on its own will not adequately ensure that society stays within environmental limits. Therefore there is a need for serious consideration and research into consumer, employee and entrepreneur behaviours.
In this vain, the Bristol Centre for Economics and Finance (BCEF) is hosting a one day inter-disciplinary conference, organised by Dr Peter Bradley, leader of BCEF's Sustainability Research Cluster and an expert in sustainability research.
Invited keynote speakers:
Dr Peter Bradley (Associate Professor in Economics, UWE Bristol)
Jes Rutter (Managing Director of JRP Solutions and ESOS auditor)
Dr Mark Everard (Associate Professor of Ecosystem Services, UWE Bristol)
