EconTrans offers an integrated perspective to address interlinked challenges: rapid GHG emission reduction, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and coping with fundamental transformations triggered by breakthrough technologies, from plus-energy buildings to self-driving electric cars. Enlarging the scope of conventional analysis by rethinking the indicators of well-being, extending the scope of resources and deepening the understanding of how well-being relates to planetary boundaries allow to derive recommendations for targeted policies.
