  2. 2. Re-thinking green roof design : The prospect of a carbon sink structure investigated through a life cycle cost-benefit analysis

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Author : Aziliz Le Rouzo; [2020]
    Keywords : Carbon Footprint; Green Roof Design; Carbon Sink; Cost-Effectiveness; Life cycle Cost-Benefit Analysis; Green Roofs; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Green Roofs (GRs) have been used worldwide as a solution for greening cities, while providing useful services to society such as storm water management, improved air quality, energy savings, and increased biodiversity, to name a few. However, the environmental impact of their structure has been understudied, and more importantly, the carbon cost related to the use of materials that have a high carbon footprint has received little to no attention.

  3. 3. Corporate Carbon Neutrality - A Systems Perspective on Current Conceptualizations Within the Textile & Clothing Industries in Respect of the Multilateral Climate Target to Establish a Net-Zero Economy

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Kultur och samhälle

    Author : Maja Sophia Wiegand; Maximilian Hagl; [2020]
    Keywords : Corporate Carbon Neutrality; Carbon Footprint; Systems Perspective; Climate Change; Organizational Theory; Net-Zero Economy;

    Abstract : Purpose – The research aims to critically evaluate the impact of current corporate carbon neutrality (CCN) conceptualizations within the textile & clothing (T&C) industries from a systems perspective in respect of the multilateral climate target to establish a net-zero economy by 2050. Contemporary mistrust and seemingly varying CCN conceptualizations may result in the collapse of the entire concept or may lead to miss the intentional target of fundamental climate change mitigation at large.

  5. 5. ICOS Atmospheric Stations: Spatial Characterization of CO2 Footprint Areas and Evaluating the Uncertainties of Modelled CO2 Concentrations

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Ida Storm; [2020]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; ICOS; Carbon dioxide; Modelling; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The main purpose of this thesis is to present and analyze spatial characteristics of 31 different European atmospheric measurement stations in the ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) station network. The characterization includes quantification of where air arriving at the stations can be expected to have come from, as well as a breakdown of what these areas cover with regards to land cover, point source emissions and population.
