Sustainable Consumption and Production

IGES cooperates with central and local governments, businesses, international organisations and other development partners to guide the transition to a resource efficient, circular and low carbon economy.  
 
Changing consumption and production patterns remains crucial for achieving a climate-resilient future. We promote upstream and downstream solutions aimed at supporting behaviour change and advancing resource efficiency including through the design of integrated waste management strategies.
