  • Drivers and barriers to return and recycling of mobile phones : case studies of communication and collection campaigns

    Welfens, Maria J.; Nordmann, Julia; Seibt, Alexandra (2016)
    This article analyses drivers and barriers to returning and recycling mobile phones and their consideration in existing communication and collection campaigns. This is an important issue based on the fact that the mobile phone market is growing rapidly. In 2015 there are nearly 7 billion global mobile cellular subscriptions. This means that, at least theoretically, everyone in the world has access to mobile communication services (ITU 2015). However, the production of mobile phones is link...

    Towards the circular economy : waste contracting

    Wilts, Claas Henning; Palzkill-Vorbeck, Alexandra (2015)
    The transition towards a circular economy is high on the political agenda and support for innovative business models can be seen as one of the key strategies for its implementation. Nevertheless most of these business models rely on an increasing generation of waste and thus undermine the prevention of waste as top of the waste hierarchy. The paper aims to link this debate to more systemic eco-innovations that offer economic market potentials by reduced material inputs and waste generation. T...

    Phoenix from the ashes : an analysis of the Paris Agreement to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change ; part 1

    Obergassel, Wolfgang; Arens, Christof; Hermwille, Lukas; Kreibich, Nicolas; Mersmann, Florian; Ott, Hermann E.; Wang-Helmreich, Hanna (2015)
    On 12 December 2015, the Parties to the UNFCCC adopted the "Paris Agreement". With this step, the world community has agreed on a collective and cooperative path to fight human-induced climate change: After 25 years of UN climate diplomacy, the world's governments have for the first time in history negotiated a treaty which envisages climate action by all nations. The Agreement sets the world on a path that might lead to a decarbonised economy in the second half of the century. Researchers fr...

    Tentative theses on transformative research in real-world laboratories : first insights from the accompanying research ForReal

    Schäpke, Niko; Stelzer, Franziska; Bergmann, Matthias; Lang, Daniel J. (2017)
    Real-world laboratories are growing in popularity promising a contribution to both: the understanding and facilitation of societal transformation towards sustainability. Baden-Württemberg substantially funds real-world labs as part of the initiative "science for sustainability". To facilitate learning with and from these so-called BaWü-Labs, they are supported by accompanying research conducted by two teams. This article presents first insights and theses on real-world labs as a research form...

    Climate policy - road works and new horizons : an assessment of the UNFCCC process from Lima to Paris and beyond

    Ott, Hermann E.; Obergassel, Wolfgang; Arens, Christof; Hermwille, Lukas; Mersmann, Florian; Wang-Helmreich, Hanna (2014)
    This paper analyses the results of the climate conference in Lima 2014 in the light of the coming climate summit in Paris by the end of this year (COP21). The authors from the Wuppertal Institute make recommendations for the improvement of the current cooperation in the context of the climate convention and they suggest to complement the existing UN regime with a club of forerunner countries in order to provide new breath for international climate policy.
