The Centre provides scientific support to clients from the private and the public sector, such as UNEP and other organisations in the field of SCP. This support includes the development, testing, implementation and monitoring of concrete projects, especially in developing countries, which enables these countries to leapfrog to sustainable consumption and production patterns using life cycle thinking and regional perspectives as guiding principles. Feel free to explore our website, read more about us or find all information nicely consolidated in the CSCP Information Brochure.
A key objective of Europe 2020, the European Union's strategy for growth and jobs, is to address the need for sustainable and inclusive growth through the promotion of a competitive and greener economy in the EU. The CSCP takes part in a timely international symposium, that provides an invaluable opportunity for delegates to examine the future of green growth in Europe by focusing on its economic, social and financial aspects.

On September 10, 2013, twenty-five delegates from the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) visited Wuppertal to exchange views on ways to foster innovation by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Rather than of share insights in industrial policy, the CSCP presented the delegation with a new perspective on framing SME innovation.
