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
The transformation from linear to circular economy is high on the European Commission’s agenda and a cornerstone of the EU Green Deal. Boosting circularity at the city level has manifold benefits: it makes mobility, waste management, and urban planning more sustainable. Circular cities are also better and more inclusive places to live in. The CSCP together with ICLEI, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Eurocities, UNEP, and other partners have developed the European Circular Cities Declaration.
15 years of working towards a good life for all and looking ahead: How can we support the global recovery and transition to a sustainable life now and in the years to come? We want to celebrate our birthday by focussing on four topics that we believe could have great impact right now. Click here to find out about the topics and how to collaborate with us!
Producing electronic and electrical equipment is a resource intensive industry. Besides production and manufacturing, electrical and electronic equipment also require electric energy in their use phase. The environmental and climate effects of electrical and electronic equipment have a lot to do with product lifetimes and obsolescence. This report, which provided the analytical underpinning for an EEA Briefing on the issue, describes the current system of electrical and electronic equipment from a European perspective – including production and consumption trends, insights on product lifetimes and obsolescence as well as environmental and climate pressures.
Call for Collaboration
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.
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.
"WRAP are delighted to partner with the CSCP to find ways of transferring the collaborative approach to food waste measurement and prevention in the UK to Germany. Together with the CSCP we want to find innovative ways to decrease food waste in Germany with a broad coalition of companies, civil society actors, political institutions and scientific institutes."
