Sarah Säll


My research focus on sustainable food consumtion and how economic policy can help consumers make sustainable choices in the food store. 


I am responsible for Mikroekonomi 1 med matematik (15 hp) given at the Department of Economics. 



Effects of a climate tax on food and ways to re-cycle incomes: A project financed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. My work involves estimating potential reductions of GHG emissions from food consumption, and the distributional effects of climate taxes on food.  The project will end late 2020. 

Future projects:

Economic policy instruments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the Swedish food sector: The project is financed by FORMAS and will start late 2020. The project involves quantitative and qualitative analysis of demand and supply of food consumed and produced in Sweden, combined with policy analysis to support a shift towards a more sustainable food sector.  

MISTRA foods future: The project starts in the fall 2020 and my work will be about locating and developing indicators for a sustainable food sector as well as policy analysis.
