The understanding of individual and household consumption patterns is a vital component in designing a sustainable future. While historically sustainability science has focused on eco-efficiency, it is becoming ever more clear that a decrease in consumption of highly impactful goods must accompany efficiency gains in order for significant environmental benefit to be realized. Jason uses life-cycle assessment, microeconomic theory and behavioral economics as a lens to better understand current consumption patterns, the impacts of potential shifts in consumption, and the behavioral motivations for shifts in preference.
