This paper establishes the implications of global climate change strategies onthe UK's consumer emissions. It presents the findings and policyramifications from two key research questions: firstly what impact doterritorial mitigation pathways have on the UK's consumption basedemissions and secondly how can changes in consumption levels and profilescontribute to mitigation. To explore these questions we have applied a "Multi-Regional EnvironmentallyExtended input output model" coupled with a set of scenario tools toquantify the impact of future mitigation efforts in the UK and globally onUK consumption emissions. The scenario tools include models to quantify theimpact of greenhouse gas mitigation policies on the direct environmentalimpacts of industry; future changes in both the level and type ofconsumption in the UK; the origin of goods and services consumed within theUK and the impact of changes in energy supply on the transactions betweenenergy providers and consumers.
