Recommendations for Consumer Policy Actions

Prosuming has a great potential to sustainably influence patterns of consumption in society. Thus, prosumers make an important contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12 “Sustainable Consumption and Production” as they promote a change in lifestyles and ways of doing business to meet the needs of today and future generations while respecting the limits of our planet.

Within the framework of the project ProMoNa – prosumption models and their sustainability potentials using the examples of nutrition and clothing, the recommendations for consumer policy action outlined in the report were developed on the basis of literature research, interviews and expert or stakeholder workshops. They should not only serve consumer policy and committed citizens as guidance and decision-making tools, but also help to avoid unintentional negative environmental impacts.
