Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

An economic paradigm shift has occurred as a result of environmental economics, sustainability and energy efficiency in the face of climate change, and citizens consider this a key factor in determining their quality of life. In this context, in this Special Issue, we aim to scientifically disseminate high-quality papers pertaining to energy and environmental policies on global and local scales. We welcome papers that utilize quantitative methods linked to the analysis of real data. Although we will consider a variety of approaches, this Special Issue focuses on:

  1. Macro-studies on changes in the energy market, new energy mix with renewables, new green energies and economic power, EU energy mix and import dependency, changes in the producer market and the effects of the Russian–Ukrainian war.
  2. The energy market and new methods of state financing through green taxes. Taxes on energy, transport, pollution and resources can help us to reach our environmental policy goals, more sustainable industry and greener habits.
  3. Tourism has environmental, economic and social impacts. Thus, it is important to minimize the negative environmental impacts through the development of sustainable tourism. This is an objective of several policies, such as goal 8 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which aims to devise and implement policies to promote sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products.
  4. Studies in the business field on information and the measurement and verification of corporate social responsibility, specifically regarding sustainability and the environment (social and environmental accounting).
  5. Sustainability has been identified as a factor that determines quality of life in "smart" cities and rural areas. It should provide an efficient balance between economic and residential systems, and the environment should undergo sustainable growth and provide improved quality of life for citizens. The planning and management of cities from this perspective leads to 'smart' development, which is also transmissible to rural areas.
