The aim of the SCP team is to provide and promote analytically-based policy recommendations, guidance and tools through multi-disciplinary policy research, as well as contribute to partnerships, networks and capacity building, for Sustainable Consumption and Production, transition management, sustainable lifestyle and circular economy and society. The SCP approach is based on life-cycle thinking. IGES explores how actors, institutions and policies interact and influence resource use to achieve well-being within society with minimal impact on the environment. Research and project activities in the SCP Area currently cover three main issues: sustainable consumption and lifestyles, sustainable resource management, and waste management and recycling.

    The SCP Area is seeking a highly motivated researcher to join its Sustainable Lifestyle Component, with the responsibilities of leading its current projects as well as formulating proposals for new and innovative research in the fields of sustainable consumption and production.
