Greening Household Behaviour: The Role of Public Policy
Published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, 2010.

It offers new insight into what policy measures really work, looking at what factors affect people's behaviour towards the environment in five areas: water use, energy use, personal transport choices, organic food consumption, and waste generation and recycling.
Household consumption patterns and behaviour have an impact on stocks of natural resources, environmental quality and climate change. Governments have introduced a variety of measures to encourage people to take into consideration the environmental impact of their purchases and practices. These may include environmentally related taxes, energy performance standards for homes, carbon dioxide emission labels for cars, and financial support to purchase solar panels, among others. Nevertheless, understanding and influencing household behaviour remains a challenge for policy makers.
