第15回日本LCA学会研究発表会講演要旨集
パリ協定の実施やネット・ゼロを目指す自治体や地域の増加を踏まえ、ライフスタイルの転換への注目が高まっている。カーボンフットプリント研究により日本においても製品やサービスの購入を通じた間接排出量がライフサイクルGHG 排出の半分以上を占めることが明らかとなっている。しかし、ライフスタイル及び消費パターンは多様であるため、一国における平均値や合計値だけではこの課題を捉えきれない。国内における消費者間の差に着目した分析が望まれるが、既存研究は世帯人数、収入、年齢に着目した分析が殆どである。本研究では、全国消費実態調査の匿名ミクロデータを用いて日本における約47,000サンプル世帯の一人当たりカーボンフットプリントを推計した。さらに、推計したカーボンフットプリントに関し...

In SDGsと環境教育:地球資源制約の視座と持続可能な開発目標のための学び
持続可能な生産と消費(SCP)は、「消費と生産システムが環境に及ぼすネガティブな影響を最小化しつつ、すべての人にとっての生活の質の向上を目指す包括的なアプローチ」と定義され、非常に包括的で広範な政策概念である。SCPに関連して、2015年に「持続可能な開発目標(SDGs)」とパリ合意と言う2つの国際合意がなされたことは注目すべきである。いずれの場合も、無限の資源、環境容量を前提としない社会経済へと舵取りすることについて国際合意したことにその画期性がある。この2つの政策的文脈の中で、生産と消費のあり方を変えることで社会経済の仕組みをより持続可能にすること(SCP)が注目されている。SCPを実現するための政策を検討する上では、製品とサービスのライフサイクル、ライフスタイルの変化...
