The Consumer Information Programme invites you to join the release of its new report “Consumer Information Tools and Climate Change – Facilitating low-carbon choices in Tourism, Buildings and Food Systems”. The report serves as a guidance for policy makers and business leaders. It informs how the use of consumer information tools can support greenhouse gas emission reductions in three sectors – Tourism, Buildings and Food.
The Tourism, Buildings and Food sector together account for more than half of humanity’s contribution to energy-related CO2 emissions. Therefore, consumption patterns in these sectors are critical to reduce global CO2 emissions. If implemented correctly, consumer information tools can influence consumer behaviour and thus trigger more sustainable consumption choices. In each sector, different approaches should be taken to inform consumers about carbon emissions. Moreover, to increase overall carbon literacy of consumers and facilitate comparison among different certifications, information tools must be harmonized and introduced on a wider basis.
You will learn about complexity in the value chains of the three sectors Tourism, Buildings and Food Systems and how this leads to substantial CO2 emissions. Additionally, the influence of social norms and psychological appeals on consumption choices is explained. Finally, recommendations for consumer information tools in each of the three sectors will be shared.
