Barbara Jaros

Abstract

The aim of the doctoral thesis - according to its title - is the concept of sustainable consumption and barriers and possibilities of its implementation in Poland. In general, sustainable consumption refers to the use of goods and services which enables the accomplishment of objectives of sustainable development, i.e. balance, durability and sustainability. This development is defined in Polish scientific literature as a new paradigm of development. The hypothesis made in this thesis assumes that beside the positive trends there are also significant barriers in the implementation of the concept of sustainable consumption in Poland. As a part of its verification the author carried out a detailed analysis of real processes and changes of the consumption in Poland with formulating the background and specifics of the EU's coasumption. The aim of the thesis was to identify possibilities and barriers in the implemeatation of the concept of sustainable consumption in Poland - the concept contributing to the irnprovement of living standards. Apart from this aim there are also eight specific objectives connected with the above - mentioned hypothesis, which are complementary and explanatory to the main aim. The hypothesis has been positively verified.
