Never before has there been a stronger global focus on solving the pressing sustainability challenges, but the expected positive societal impact will not be achieved unless rebound effects are prevented.
REBOUNDLESS aims to enable a paradigm shift for preventing rebound effects through novel methodologies, simulation models and strategies for the design of reboundless solutions.
We focus on four main human needs, which account for three quarters of the global carbon footprint.
Our interdisciplinaty team is composed of core researchers, associated researchers and guest researchers.

Our principal investigator, Daniela Pigosso was recently featured in an article by the Danish newspaper Dagbladet Information.
In the news piece, Daniela talked about how good intentions may lead to greater consumption, the role of direct and indirect rebound effects, and how REBOUNDLESS intends to pave the way towards a zero percent ‘rebound’.
The discussions there are based on our upcoming study co-authored by Elise Andrew and Daniela Pigosso, which shows that 47% of potential sustainability gains are not realised due to rebound effects.
