A study conducted by the research organisations CE Delft, Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, and LEI Wageningen has identified 36 options for behavioural change in the areas of mobility, housing and food, which could be used to reduce emissions. The report argues that behavioural changes can complement technological changes and allow emission reduction targets to be reached more cost-effectively. Eleven of the behavioural change options are studied in depth, and emission reduction potentials for each have been quantified for 2020, 2030 and 2050. The report also highlights barriers to implementing the changes, and quantifies the likely effects of policy packages which could overcome these barriers.
