Uddin, Md Sala, 2020. Does urban enlargement influence CO2 emissions in Sweden? : labour market growth and commuting patterns. Second cycle, A2E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Economics



This study investigates how urban structures (as defined by compactness, concentration, and functional diversity) and labour market growth affect CO2 emissions in Sweden’s 39 largest labour markets. This study asks which urban structures are associated with fewer CO2 emissions due to commuting. In addition, the study adjusts for sociodemographic characteristics and accessibility variables. Urban enlargement along with labour market growth affects commuting patterns and per capita CO2 emissions from commuting. A more compact and smaller urban structure with an efficient employment distribution is associated with fewer CO2 emissions from commuting, an effect which could be enhanced by increasing accessibility.
