Abstract

This research examined the link between shopping mobility and travel CO2 emissions among suburban residents in Shenyang, China. We found suburban residents travelled 14.33 km and produced 1111.32 g of CO2 per shopping trip. The high emitters are mostly located at the urban fringe, travelling long distances and having a stronger dependency on cars. Furthermore, we used a binary logistic regression model to discover the main factors statistically significant in explaining private car usage. Evidence from this research indicates the need to formulate sustainable transport policies and reduce carbon emissions through compact urban forms and transit-oriented development.
