Law Research Report - Does Brazil Have Conscious or Sustainable Consumption?
  • Claudia Ribeiro Pereira Nunes

Currently, consumption fulfills different functions and involves multiple references,such as social construction, but in current standards it presents as irresponsible or unsustainable, both in the environmental perspective and in the construction of citizenship. This thesis addresses the problem of environmental licensing and its real function in the regulated retail gas station market which few consumers are aware of. As a result, this research explores the need to create the following set of specific categories of consumption: conscious, and responsible or sustainable.

  • environmental licensing,
  • consumption,
  • sustainable

The legal environmental order includes, beyond the principles, objectives and guidelines. The sustainability economic activity imposes regulations on the pollution and instruments for environmental management. There are two categories of consumers: the conscious, and the sustainable and, if any, to trace the basic parameters of distinction between them using environmental licensing as a categorical imperative to differentiate the design of consumer species.
