SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION OF RURAL AND URBAN HOUSEHOLDS IN POLAND

Keywords: sustainable development, sustainable consumption, rural and urban areas, households
Abstract:
Sustainable consumption is the consumption of goods and services satisfying fundamental needs, increasing
life quality, reducing resource use, degradation and pollution along the whole lifecycle of product or service.
The aim of the study is to examine whether the consumption of urban households is more sustainable
compared to rural ones and to identify directions of changes in this regard. The analysis was realised on the
basis of Household Budget Survey conducted by the Central Statistical Office of Poland (CSO) in the span
of 2006–2015. The results show that urban and rural households in Poland shift their consumption patterns
towards less sustainable as well as urban households’ consumption pattern in some areas is less sustainable
that urban ones.
