Kyoto4All

Engaging householders in  CO2 emission reductions

Kyoto4All was a 2006 report written by Peter van Luttervelt, David Beatty and Edgar Kampers for the Dutch Ministry of Environment (then named VROM). The study described a series of monetary models to connect citizens-consumers to the climate change targets of the post-Kyoto period.

The conclusion of the research was that important reductions (50% or more) of CO2 emissions can only be achieved when households get involved in a significant lifestyle and societal change. The report calls for new steering instruments for making such changes happen: community currencies and green loyalty schemes might play a crucial role in this direction.
