  • Sharing tableware reduces waste generation, emissions and water consumption in China’s takeaway pa
    Nature Food | September 15, 2020

    China has a rapidly growing online food delivery and takeaway market, serving 406 million customers with 10.0 billion orders and generating 323 kilotonnes of tableware and packaging waste in 2018. Here we use a top-down approach with city-level takeaway order data to explore the packaging waste and life-cycle environmental impacts of the takeaway industry in China. The ten most wasteful cities, with just 7% of the population, in terms o...

  • Environmental-social-economic footprints of consumption and trade in the Asia-Pacific region
    Nature Communications | September 08, 2020

    Asia-Pacific (APAC) has been the world’s most dynamic emerging area of economic development and trade in recent decades. Here, we reveal the significant and imbalanced environmental and socio-economic effects of the region’s growths during 1995-2015. Owing to the intra-regional trade of goods and services, APAC economies grew increasingly interdependent in each other’s water and energy use, greenhouse gas (GHG) and PM2.5 emissions,...

  • Global supply-chain effects of COVID-19 control measures
    Nature Human Behaviour | June 03, 2020

    Countries have sought to stop the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) by severely restricting travel and in-person commercial activities. Here, we analyse the supply-chain effects of a set of idealized lockdown scenarios, using the latest global trade modelling framework. We find that supply-chain losses that are related to initial COVID-19 lockdowns are largely dependent on the number of countries imposing restrictions and th...

  • Economic development and converging household carbon footprints in China
    Nature Sustainability | March 30, 2020

    There are substantial differences in carbon footprints across households. This study applied an environmentally extended multiregional inpu-output approach to estimate household carbon footprints for 12 different income groups of China’s 30 regions. Subsequently, carbon footprint Gini coefficients were calculated to measure carbon inequality for households across provinces. We found that the top 5% of income earners were responsible f...

  • A psychophysical measurement on subjectivewell-being and air pollution
    Nature Communications | November 29, 2019

    Although the physical effects of air pollution on humans are well documented, there may be even greater impacts on the emotional state and health. Surveys have traditionally been used to explore the impact of air pollution on people’s subjective well-being (SWB). However, the survey techniques usually take long periods to properly match the air pollution characteristics from monitoring stations to each respondent’s SWB at both disag...

  • Inequality of household consumption and air pollution-related deaths in China
    Nature Communications | September 25, 2019

    Substantial quantities of air pollution and related health impacts are ultimately attributable to household consumption. However, how consumption pattern affects air pollution impacts remains unclear. Here we show, of the 1.08 (0.74-1.42) million premature deaths due to anthropogenic PM2.5 exposure in China in 2012,20% are related to household direct emissions through fuel use and 24% are related to household indirect emissions embodied...

  • Detection of human influences on temperature seasonality from the nineteenth century
    Nature Sustainability | April 22, 2019

    It has been widely reported that anthropogenic warming is detectable with high confidence after the 1950s. However, current palaeoclimate records suggest an earlier onset of industrial-era warming. Here, we combine observational data, multiproxy palaeo records and climate model simulations for a formal detection and attribution study. Instead of the traditional approach to the annual mean temperature change, we focus on changes in tempe...

  • Emissions are still rising: ramp up the cuts
    Nature | December 05, 2018

    With sources of renewable energy spreading fast, all sectors can do more to decarbonize the world, argue Christiana Figueres and colleagues. Representatives of 190 nations gather this week to review progress at the annual United Nations climate talks. They face a daunting reality: carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels are rising again. ...

  • Multi-objective analysis of the co-mitigation of CO2 and PM2.5 pollution by China's iron and steel i
    Journal of Cleaner Production | June 01, 2018

    China has experienced serious fine particulate matter (PM 2.5 ) pollution in recent years, and carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions must be controlled so that China can keep its pledge to reduce CO 2 emissions by 2030. The iron and steel industry is energy intensive and contributes significantly to PM 2.5 pollution in China. The simultaneous reduction of CO 2 emissions and PM 2.5 pollution while minimizing the total mitigation costs remains...

  • China's Energy Consumption in the New Normal
    Earth | June 15, 2018

    Energy consumption is one of main reasons for global warming and highly correlated with economic development. As the largest energy consumer worldwide, China has entered a new economic development model—the “new normal.” This study aims to explore the pattern shift in China's energy consumption growth in this new development phase. We use structural decomposition analysis and environmentally extended input‐output analysis to dec...

  • China's “Exported Carbon” Peak: Patterns, Drivers, and Implications
    Geophysical Research Letters | May 16, 2018

    Over the past decade, China has entered a “new normal” phase in economic development, with its role in global trade flows changing significantly. This study estimates the driving forces of Chinese export‐embodied carbon emissions in the new normal phase, based on environmentally extended multiregional input‐output modeling and structural decomposition analysis. We find that Chinese export‐embodied CO 2 emissions peaked in 2008...

  • Cities: the core of climate change mitigation
    Journal of Cleaner Production | January 01, 2018

    Cities, the core of the global climate change mitigation and strategic low-carbon development, are shelters to more than half of the world population and responsible for three quarters of global energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG). This special volume (SV) provides a platform that promotes multi- and inter- disciplinary analyses and discussions on the climate change mitigation for cities. All papers are divided into four themes,...

  • A review of air pollution impact on subjective well-being: Survey versus visual psychophysics
    Journal of Cleaner Production | May 20, 2018

    Air pollution is a worldwide environmental and health issue, especially in major developing countries. A recent World Health Organization report shows about 3 million deaths in the world in 2012 are due to ambient air pollution and China and India are the countries with the most severe challenge. Air pollution influences people's thought and experience of their lives directly by visual perceptions. This reduces people's subjective well-...

  • Estimating household air pollution exposures and health impacts from space heating in rural China
    Environment International | October 01, 2018

    Exposure to and the related burden of diseases caused by pollution from solid fuel cooking, known as household air pollution (HAP), has been incorporated in the assessment of the Global Burden of Diseases (GBD) project. In contrast, HAP from space heating using solid fuels, prevalent in countries at middle or high altitudes , is less studied and missing from the GBD assessment. China is an ideal example to estimate the bias of exposure ...

  • Unequal household carbon footprints in China
    Nature Climate Change | December 19, 2016

    Households’ carbon footprints are unequally distributed among the rich and poor due to differences in the scale and patterns of consumption. We present distributional focused carbon footprints for Chinese households and use a carbon-footprint-Gini coefficient to quantify inequalities. We find that in 2012 the urban very rich, comprising 5% of population, induced 19% of the total carbon footprint from household consumption in China, wi...

  • Risk assessment of oil price from static and dynamic modelling approaches
    Applied Economics | July 14, 2016

    The price gap between West Texas Intermediate (WTI) and Brent crude oil markets has been completely changed in the past several years. The price of WTI was always a little larger than that of Brent for a long time. However, the price of WTI has been surpassed by that of Brent since 2011. The new market circumstances and volatility of oil price require a comprehensive re-estimation of risk. Therefore, this study aims to explore an integr...

  • Flood footprint of the 2007 floods in the UK: The case of the Yorkshire and The Humber region
    Journal of Cleaner Production | December 01, 2017

    International headlines over the last few years have been dominated by extreme weather events, and floods have been amongst the most frequent and devastating. These disasters represent high costs and functional disruptions to societies and economies. The consequent breakdown of the economic equilibrium exacerbates the losses of the initial physical damages and generates indirect costs that largely amplify the burden of the total damage....

    Economic Analysis and Policy | March 01, 2017

    It has been five and a half years since the Great East Japan Earthquake (GEJE) in March 2011. This study summarize management and policy lessons from the GEJE. The recovery efforts that followed the triple disasters: the earthquake, tsunami and meltdown of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant are in progress. The experience of the GEJE and tsunami prompted the building of embankments throughout the Pacific coastal side of the Tohoku reg...

  • An index of inequality in China
    Nature Energy | September 25, 2017

    Household income is a typical measure of inequality, but it is limited by under-reporting, especially for rural Chinese households. A new study shows that energy consumption measures service flows of household durable electronics, which can provide more precise measurement of rural wealth inequalities and distributions. ...

  • Substantial global carbon uptake by cement carbonation
    Nature Geoscience | November 21, 2016

    Calcination of carbonate rocks during the manufacture of cement produced 5% of global CO2emissions from all industrial process and fossil-fuel combustion in 2013 1 , 2 . Considerable attention has been paid to quantifying these industrial process emissions from cement production 2 , 3 , but the natural reversal of the process—carbonation—has received little attention in carbon cycle studies. Here, we use new and existing data on cem...

  • EU-wide economic valuation of adaptation to climate change
    | January 01, 2016

    Within the BASE project the economic effects of adaptation to climate change are systematically evaluated both from a bottom up and top down perspective. This is done by integrating sectoral models and economic models at EU and global scale with information from selected case studies across sectors and regions within Europe. In addition this layered approach builds upon previous studies that have either focused on a top down modelling or...

  • SESAME: Exploring small businesses’ behaviour to enhance resilience to flooding
    E3S Web of Conferences | October 20, 2016

    In the United Kingdom, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) account for approximately 99.9% of businesses, 60% of the working population and 47% annual turnover. However, despite the important contribution that SMEs make to the economy, this size of business remains under-researched with a significant gap in understanding how the disruption caused by flooding impacts on SMEs from the time at which a flood event occurs through to th...

  • Climate policy: Steps to China's carbon peak
    Nature | June 17, 2015

  • China's toxic informal e-waste recycling: local approaches to a global environmental problem
    Journal of Cleaner Production | February 15, 2016

    Electronic waste or e-waste has been an increasingly severe problem over the last decade, and is the fastest growing waste stream in the world. China's inexpensive labour and manufacturing abilities have already made it “the world's factory” and for e-waste recycling it is no exception. Informal workers do the majority of e-waste collection and recycling in cities throughout China. E-waste recycling work provides livelihoods for mig...

  • Determinants of stagnating carbon intensity in China
    Nature Climate Change | October 05, 2014

    China committed itself to reduce the carbon intensity of its economy (the amount of CO2emitted per unit of GDP) by 40–45% during 2005–2020. Yet, between 2002 and 2009, China experienced a 3% increase in carbon intensity, though trends differed greatly among its 30 provinces. Decomposition analysis shows that sectoral efficiency gains in nearly all provinces were offset by movement towards a more carbon-intensive economic structure. ...

  • Energy Policy: A low-carbon roadmap for China
    Nature | August 07, 2013

    Recycling, renewables and a reinvigorated domestic energy market will allow China to lead the world in low-carbon development, say Zhu Liu and colleagues....

  • Outsourcing CO2 within China
    PNAS | July 09, 2013

    Recent studies have shown that the high standard of living enjoyed by people in the richest countries often comes at the expense of CO2emissions produced with technologies of low efficiency in less affluent, developing countries. Less apparent is that this relationship between developed and developing can exist within a single country’s borders, with rich regions consuming and exporting high-value goods and services that depend upon p...

  • China’s water management – challenges and solutions
    Environmental Engineering and Management Journal | July 01, 2013

    China has experienced enormously rapid development since the open door policy introduced in 1979. Population has increased by 30% to 1.3 billion, and the annual GDP growth rate is at 9.8 %. Nevertheless, frequent water disasters of recent years have caused significant damage to China’s regional growth and societies. There are huge contemporary challenges for Chinese water resources management. In this paper, we examine three major cha...

  • Preliminary exploration on low-carbon technology roadmap of China’s power sector
    Energy | March 01, 2011

    Climate change poses huge challenges to the sustainable development of human society. As a major CO2emission source, decarbonization of power sector is fundamental for CO2emission abatement. Therefore, considering the “carbon lock-in” effects, it’s critical to formulate an appropriate roadmap for low-carbon generation technologies. In this paper, key low-carbon technology solutions are firstly identified according to their develop...

  • Distributional Effects of Climate Change Taxation: The Case of the UK
    Environmental Science & Technology | April 29, 2010

    Current economic instruments aimed at climate change mitigation focus mainly on CO2emissions, but efficient climate mitigation needs to focus on other greenhouse gases as well as CO2. This study investigates the distributional effects of climate change taxes on households belonging to different income and lifestyle groups; and it compares the effects of a CO2tax with a multiple GHG tax in the UK in terms of cost efficiency and distribut...
