Recent Publications by Our faculty:
Dr. Soumyajit Bhar Published a co-authored research article titled “Water, air pollution and carbon footprints of conspicuous/luxury consumption in India” in Ecological Economics Journal. (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0921800924000016?dgcid=author)
This article connects conspicuous/luxury (C/L) consumption in India to its local, regional and global environmental impacts. We evaluate carbon dioxide (CO2), water, and particulate matter (PM2.5) footprints of consumption disaggregated into food-basic, nonfood-basic, and C/L consumption across expenditure deciles. We find that all three footprints rise, but at different rates, with increasing expenditure. These results imply that demand reduction measures in C/L consumption could have broad-based and deep environmental benefits, while pollutant-specific mitigation policies may face trade-offs with other environmental impacts.This article is unique in showing the distribution of three different types of footprints of different consumption baskets across income deciles.
