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
Under the hashtag #allefürsklima (all for climate) the youth-led global #FridaysforFuture movement is asking all members of society to show their support and join the upcoming Global Climate Strike Day on 20 September 2019. We are excited about the response by civil society, companies, NGOs, as well as many other organisations who are supporting this day. The CSCP joins the Global Climate Strike Day in support of the movement’s goals that are deeply linked to our mission: working towards mainstreaming sustainable consumption and production.
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.
Achieving healthier, more equitable and sustainable European societies requires some fundamental changes in our current lifestyles and behaviours. For an optimal outcome, the necessary changes should be planned as part of a holistic vision. The INHERIT project policy roadmap contains a set of 20 policy interventions covering leverages and opportunities in four lifestyle areas: green space, energy efficient housing, moving and (food) consumption, and a fifth ‘general’ area. The policy suggestions are a combination of top-down and bottom-up approaches and hard and soft measures, ranging from legislative, environmental and social planning to service provision or communication and marketing policy.
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.
"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."
