Who we are
The Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP) is a Think and Do tank that works with businesses, policy makers, partner organisations and civil society towards a sustainable planet
During COP 22, on 17 November 2016, the Government of Morocco and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) announced the launch of the worldwide “SMARTer2030 Action Coalition”. CSCP as a long term GeSI partner joined the Coalition as one of the founding partners.
The EU-funded project – Intersectoral Health and Environment Research for Innovation (INHERIT) will examine the health and environmental implications of our living, moving and consuming patterns. The 18-partner, 4-year Horizon 2020 research project brings together experts from the health, environment and other sectors, including technology, to investigate how to ensure environmental sustainability and improve health equity and well-being. The goal: to see how we can modify our lifestyles to simultaneously protect the environment and our health.
The report SUPPLY CHA!NGE in European food chains provides a comprehensive overview of the Business Forum, which took place in Milan in October 2015, as part of the SUPPLY CHA!NGE project. But more than just reporting about the event, the report analyses and explores the challenges relating to the complex, heterogeneous, and globalized nature of European food supply chains and their implications in the context of supermarket store brands. Asserting the need to implement a holistic and multi-stakeholder approach, the report also identifies opportunities and provides recommendations for the process of making these supply chains more sustainable and fair.
"CSCP promotes innovation and provides significant support to finding sustainable development solutions. In the realm of sustainable consumption, it inspires new ways of thinking sustainability, placing the individual as the starting point of change, understanding that less consumption is driven by wellbeing and happiness."
