Low carbon mobility versus private car ownership: Towards a new business vision for the automotive world?
AbstractThis article considers a generalized leasing model for car use as a means of better reconciling profit seeking by car makers with environmental improvements, while supporting income generation and employment in the car business sector. It locates its contribution against the â€˜extended producer responsibilityâ€™ framework, proposed by some as a basis for a corporate response to environmental and resource concerns. We show that within limits a reorganization of the business model informing the volume car market offers one part of a solution to problems of economic growth and climate change. The article progresses to consider obstacles to change and options for government policy.
