Think2030: Sustainable Consumption – Policy Approaches for Systems Change

This policy paper discusses the role of the EU in driving sustainable consumption towards and beyond 2030. It identifies challenges for doing so and potential opportunities for overcoming them. Five policy themes are suggested as particularly promising for systems change. Those are: the active promotion of a green fiscal reform, a centralised system for environmental product information, the provision of funding to advance the sustainable consumption agenda, the exploration of best practice and scalability of integrating behavioural insights into policies and the expansion of circular and green procurement guidelines.

We Are in This Together

The most vulnerable, and therefore the hardest hit by the Corona pandemic are developing countries. There, due to high levels of informality, lack of infrastructure, and poorer living conditions, the effects of the pandemic are felt way more severely. We must, therefore, enhance our international collaboration to support these countries not only in overcoming the present crisis, but also in strengthening their resilience for the future.
