Investing in a Good Life
Who we are
The Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP) is an international nonprofit Think and Do tank that works with businesses, policy makers, partner organisations and civil society towards a good life
Together with European partners, the CSCP is setting up the Consumer Insight Action Panel for the circular economy. Its mandate is to analyse circular economy challenges within the sectors of textiles, plastics and electronics from a consumer behaviour perspective. The research will be combined with pilot testing and replication activities to create a real impact when informing policy and business innovations.How can we enable and motivate consumers to repair or reuse electronic products?
While we offer a variety of Think and Do Services to all actors in society, we have created fact sheets for your organisations and municipalities to get a quick and clear overview of our top tools to future-proof your products and services through procurement strategies, holistic impact assessments, sustainable portfolios and business model innovation.
The Handprint is an innovative and holistic approach to facilitate the measurement, evaluation, and communication of the ecological, economic and social sustainability impacts of products. The existing approach of the footprint focuses on negative ecological impacts on individuals, organizations or countries. The handprint on the other hand shall determine, measure and evaluate the positive sustainability impacts including the social and economic dimension. This is the project’s final report.
Call for Collabortion
Digitalisation fundamentally alters the way we do business and how we interact with one another and with our environment. This challenges all of us to shape this new playing field to enable a good life for everyone. There are great opportunities for organisations as well as for sustainability, but with them, we also face new responsibilities.
If you are interested in collaborating with the CSCP, the Co-Working Space might be the right starting place for you. To find out more, contact Ramon Külpmann.
"The CSCP organizes in a great way the collaboration between companies, NGOs, societal actors and further stakeholders. With the Nestlé NGO and expert council and the Rewe Pro Planet council the CSCP is responsible for hosting two leading examples of successful stakeholder interactions."
