Reports - which contain recommendations
Pamphlets - longer essays, or sometimes a collection of essays by different people
Gases - shorter essays which look at a topical issue
Books - we have published two books.
Plus we have submitted evidence to inquiries, responded to consultations or reports produced by other people. These are available on our Responses page.
Decisions on whether to publish material are taken by the Green House Core Group. However, the views expressed are those of the authors not of Green House as an organisation.
In this extended review article, John Foster considers some recent thinking on living within limits, and discusses the implications for Green House’s current ‘Rethinking Demand’ project.
Green House has contributed two chapters to a new book published this week, A European Just Transition for a Better World. We were partners in this Green European Foundation transnational project tackling the question of a Just Transition – transforming from an extractive to a regenerative economy in a just and
Regulation is essential to ensure global mineral extraction is politically and environmentally sustainable.. It This report argues that the only way to reduce the damage caused by mineral extraction is stronger regulation.
This report is part of a project led by the Green European Foundation exploring what a climate emergency economy would look like through a rethinking of trade, industry and infrastructure investment.
Chapman argues we should shift attention from carbon emissions to stopping fossil fuel extraction. The climate crisis requires we stop extraction now, but just as in the lockdowns there were exceptions to the general stay at home rule, there would need to be exceptions to the ban on fossil fuels
Sufficient and appropriately directed global public investment is critical to shift our economies globally to zero carbon. Currently such investment is inadequate, and still funds infrastructure expansion which increases dependance of fossil fuel reliant.
This gas by Peter Sims asks whether COP26 will succeed and argues that it needs to stop asking the wrong questions in order to take the opportunity to change direction
The Toolkit is made up of 10 blockers to zero carbon, and 10 enablers. Each of these represents an intervention in our economy which taken together
Jonathan Essex's response to the government's Department of Transport consultation on achieving net zero within aviation by 2050.
On the spectrum from conventional activism and politics through to arrest-willing non-violent direct action, the most obvious vacancy is work. We need to be delivering the necessary transformative change via our day jobs: working to ensure that the job really is part of the solution, not the problem
Emma Dawnay's proposal outlined is that the Green Book is updated to require the key metrics of greenhouse gas emissions to be at the forefront of each and every project appraisal
Jonathan Essex's gas examines the UK government's aviation strategy, and sees it as inadequate to deal with the scale and severity climate change
Our current targets to phase out fossil fuels is insufficient. Investment drives increases in hard to decarbonise transport infrastructure. Only by shifting our investment priorities in these terms will it be possible to meet the target of keeping global warming within the 1.5°C
Our economy is not currently zero carbon, stable or sustainable, even in economic terms. What interventions are required to deliver the rapid transition required? What must these interventions achieve and how should these requirements be defined?
