About 2.6 billion people live on less than 2 dollars per day while the current ecological footprint of global consumption and production (SCP) patterns exceeds the earth’s capacity to regenerate. In view of this social, economic and environmental crisis, governments, business and civil society around the world will need to take collective action.
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is developing a Global Outlook on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Policies, which can also inform the design of policies and investments to make the transition to a Green Economy. You, as representatives from governments, business and civil society can directly participate in this project by communicating your current activities on SCP.
The Global Outlook Report will draw on these examples, showcasing your commitments achievements and policy shifts towards SCP. The Global Outlook report and database will become a reference for policies and practices along the whole life cycle of goods and services wherever possible also recording development benefits.
