A major portion of greenhouse gas emissions at the national level are caused by household dwellings. This report explores how income and time allocation shifts in consumption and time allocation in the Japanese residential sector's carbon footprint. The overall carbon footprint and emissions for many of the individual consumption categories follow an Nu2010-shaped curve, with certain of the loweru2010income groups having disproportionately higher emissions in comparison to middleu2010 and higher-income groups. This leads to the fact that different factors influence emissions across income groups, with the tendency of lower-income households to spend more time at home and reliance on inefficient technologies affecting them, while higher-income households' purchase of more is indicative.
