Can material efficiency help the world achieve net-zero CO2 emissions by mid-century? The Journal of Industrial Ecology is seeking original research contributions on this topic for a special issue on “Material Efficiency for Climate Change Mitigation.” Manuscripts are invited that directly apply Industrial Ecology concepts, tools, and findings to understand material efficiency solutions and their potential mitigation impact on climate change. Papers engaging Industrial Ecology’s various subfields such as life cycle assessment, environmentally-extended input-output analysis, data envelopment analysis, material flow analysis, industrial symbiosis, sustainable consumption, and the circular economy are especially welcome.

Deadline for extended abstracts is September 2nd, 2019.
