The GEAR members Manuel Tomás, Luis A. López and Fabio Monsalve, have recently published the article entitled «Carbon footprint, municipality size and rurality in Spain: Inequality and carbon taxation» in Journal of Cleaner Production.

In this paper, the authors assess the Spanish households’ carbon footprint for the 2008-2017 period considering the municipality size as well as the urban or rural residential zone. In light of the results, they test whether the carbon footprint inequality among households could lead to asymmetric regressive impacts based on where families live.

We hope you enjoy it!
