  1. 1. On Sustainability of Biomass for Energy and the Governance Thereof

    Författare :Oskar Englund; [2016]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sustainability; land use; spatial modelling; biomass production; certification; environmental legislation; biomass resources; ecosystem services; Bioenergy; GIS; biodiversity; governance;

    Sammanfattning : Due to concerns about climate change, energy security, and resource scarcity, non- renewable resources are increasingly being displaced by biomass. As with most human activities, the production of biobased products can be associated with negative impacts. Primarily, this relates to the biomass supply systems, i.e. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Unravelling Sustainability The complex dynamics of emergent environmental governance and management systems at multiple scales

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Författare :Lucas Dawson; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Integrated adaptive environmental governance and management; Social-ecological system dynamics; Complex systems; Sustainability transitions; Sustainability strategies; Multi-level governance; Causal loop diagrams; Green Infrastructure; Landscape restoration; Habitat restoration; Biodiversity conservation; Comprehensive planning; Stakeholder participation; System thinking; Water Framework Directive; Sustainable water governance; Collaborative learning; Communities of practice; Knowledge management; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis adopts a complex systems approach to investigate the dynamic emergence of sustainable environmental governance and management systems in multiple contexts in Europe. Accelerating rates of environmental degradation across the world have called the legitimacy of previous environmental governance and management arrangements into question. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Exploring logistics actions enabling environmentally sustainable freight transport

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Författare :Vendela Santén; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; co-operation; freight transport; actions; load factor; logistics; actors’ perspectives; sustainability; environment;

    Sammanfattning : To curb unsustainable freight transport trends; such as transport growth, larger dependency on road transport and generally an increased share of greenhouse gas emissions from the sector, actions needs to be taken among actors in the logistics system. The purpose of this thesis is to explore logistics actions that enable environmentally sustainable freight transport. LÄS MER

  4. 4. How municipalities can work with digitalisation for environmental aims

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

    Författare :Tina Ringenson; KTH.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainability; municipalities; environmental aims; environmental goals; smart city; smart sustainable city; digitalisation; ICT4S;

    Sammanfattning : Humanity is facing big environmental challenges. Apart from the climate changes, there is also an ongoing depletion of the natural resources necessary for our survival in general, and for highly electronics-dependant lifestyles especially. At the same time, both urbanisation and digitalisation are progressing at a rapid pace. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Towards a Sustainable Resource Management A Broader Systems Approach to Product Design and Waste Management

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

    Författare :Jagdeep Singh; KTH.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Resource Management; Product Design; Waste Management Challenges; Systems Thinking; Sustainability Science; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Rapid economic growth, urbanisation and increasing population have caused (materially intensive) resource consumption to increase, and consequently the release of large amounts of waste to the environment. Numerous technological and operational approaches to resource management have been introduced throughout the system of production, consumption and waste management. LÄS MER
