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
16 consortiums won the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Innovation Competition run by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) and will have the chance to start implementing their AI-related project ideas from early 2020 onwards. Among the 16 winners is the project “REIF: Resource-efficient, Economic and Intelligent Foodchain”, which aims to revolutionise the food industry in Germany to guarantee a supply that is as waste-free as possible. The CSCP is a partner of this research project which investigates the potential of AI to optimise the planning and control processes in the food industry.
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.
Mauritius is challenged both in terms of food autonomy and the demographics of its agricultural sector. The government plan seeks to reduce the dependency on imports, thereby diminishing loss of currency and CO2 footprint. Furthermore, it seeks to ensure a continuity and economic viability of its agricultural sector, whose backbone is constituted by the small planters. Yet a majority of these are over 50 years of age. It is therefore socially, economically and environmentally vital, that demand and supply of sustainable Fresh Fruit and Vegetables (FFV) be achieved in a way that strengthens this agricultural population and provides inspiring perspectives for the next generation.
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.

"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."
