The parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) reached the Paris Agreement to combat climate change and to intensify the actions needed for a sustainable transition towards a low-carbon future. This transition will require holistic approaches and complex societal changes, requiring solutions and collaboration between, private, public, and academic sectors. Many previous studies have identified potential areas for improving societal environmental impacts by improving large impacting sectors, including transitioning and improving our energy and food supply and transforming our economic system to deliver more environmentally friendly products and services through a more circular and bio-based economy.
This Special Issue aims to encourage studies exploring the transition towards a more sustainable future, encompassing and identifying the development and implications of more sustainable options in collaboration with communities, firms, policy makers, and researchers to achieve this transition.
Theoretical, methodological, and practical studies are welcomed in this Issue. In particular, potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- The role of renewables in a low-carbon society;
- Policy perspectives on energy, the environment, and related urban trajectories towards sustainability;
- The concept of waste as a resource and the applications of end-of-life strategies in several sectors;
- The contribution of manufacturing technology towards the circular economy;
- The relationship between circular economy models and sustainable advantages;
- Life cycle sustainability assessments; applying environmental, economic, and/or social perspectives, of sustainable transitions;
- The social dimension of sustainability transitions;
- The economic feasibility of projects;
- Practices and actions towards an environmentally friendly society;
- Consequential assessments of sustainable consumption and production;
- The role of subsidies in contrast climate change.
