23/03/21 - New article on the role of planetary boundaries in assessing absolute environmental sustainability across scales

The article published in Environment International explores how Planetary Boundaries (PBs) have been considered in Absolute Environmental Sustainability (AES) research at different scales. The authors present a critique of how consensus could be reached in standardising and harmonising the share of globally and locally allocated safe operating spaces. They argue that PBs must be linked to human consumption as the main socio-economic driver and that planetary concerns can only be addressed through a holistic perspective that encompasses global tele-connections.
