  1. 1. The Karma of Products Exploring the Causality of Environmental Pressure with Causal Loop Diagram and Environmental Footprint

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Rafael Laurenti; KTH.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Products; Environmental Pressure; Causal Loop Diagram; Environmental Footprint; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Environmental pressures from consumer products and mechanisms of predetermination were examined in this thesis using causal loop diagram (CLD) and life cycle assessment (LCA) footprinting to respectively illustrate and provide some indicators about these mechanisms. Theoretical arguments and their practical implications were subjected to qualitative and quantitative analysis, using secondary and primary data. LÄS MER

  5. 5. How do standardised environmental management systems affect environmental performance and business?

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : LiU/Unitryck

    Författare :Jonas Ammenberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2001]
