Abstract

This report is the first of a series of reports produced by the Climate Bonus study. In this project is surveyed what are the possibilities and the effectiveness of the combined use of (1) verified carbon footprints (possibly visualised through labels), (2) personalised monitoring and feedback services to households regarding the greenhouse gas intensities of their purchases, (3) a reward system (bonuses) for consumers who manage to reduce the embodied emissions, and (4) a secondary reward system for retailers that successfully reduce the emission intensity of their sales. This first report is based on a quick scan of literature and internet sources as well as on a few interviews. It provides an overview of developments in the applications of the constituent elements of the above mentioned combination elsewhere in Europe. Particular attention is paid to retail client bonus systems, green credit cards, carbon offset services, and product chain – emission data bases (notably specific emission attribution methodology and verification). In addition to a review of findings regarding experiences elsewhere the discussions include also theoretical or methodological considerations.
