Descripción
Transport is a major user of carbon-based fuels and is seen as crucial intervention sector for meeting CO2 emission reduction targets. While the academic literature has traditionally focused more on correlating built environment factors (i.e. urban density, trip distance, etc.) and production of CO2 in the transport sector, only limited attention has been paid to the influence of lifestyle factors. This paper examines the effects of lifestyle and built environments factors on transport CO2 emissions generated by the daily commutes to and from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) in Greater Barcelona (Spain). The analysis revealed that lifestyle choices were as relevant as the built environment for understanding the emitting sources and CO2 volume. Accordingly, the study provides insights how the design of efficient transport policy packages can integrate lifestyle factors as a central focal point.
