From Orange to Green: Framing Dutch Sustainability Infrastructure

The paper, 'Greening the state? The framing of sustainability in Dutch infrastructure governance', published in the journal Environmental Science & Policy (Elsevier) investigates how the notion of sustainability is strategically framed in the context of infrastructure governance in the Netherlands.

Higher Density Cities = Lower CO2 Emissions

The research, 'City density and CO2 efficiency', published in the journal Energy Policy (Elsevier) focuses on the relationship between city population density and urban energy consumption and the subsequent GHG emissions.  The reports analyses all inhabited areas in the US, showing a sub-linear relationship between population density and total emissions. Results suggest that on-going urban sprawl leads to an increase in on-road energy consumption in cities and therefore stresses the importance of developing adequate local policy measures to limit urban sprawl.
