Consumption Opportunities

Price: $ 20

Sustainable consumption was raised as one of the key challenges of sustainability for the first time at the Rio Eart Summit in 1992. Since then progress on tracking consumption patterns, and devising the tools to change them, has been slow. This publication has five objectives: to recap the development of the sustainable consumption debate; to outline the core issues of sutainable consumption; to identify 'critical problems' which have hampered progress on sustainable consumption; to review the tools, policies and actions which have been suggested for delivering sustainable consumption; and to suggest how sustainable consumption in practice can deliver social, cultural, economic and environmental benefits. This publication should be read by government, industry decision-makers, policy-shapers, academic researchers and civil society leaders and organizers.
