Responsible Consumption And Production

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns



Implement the 10-Year Framework of Programs on sustainable consumption and production (10YFP), all countries taking action, with developed countries taking the lead, taking into account the development and capabilities of developing countries


By 2030, achieve sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources


By 2030, halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer level, and reduce food losses along production and supply chains including post-harvest losses


By 2020, achieve environmentally sound management of chemicals and all wastes throughout their life cycle in accordance with agreed international frameworks and significantly reduce their release to air, water and soil to minimise their adverse impacts on human health and the environment


By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling, and reuse


Encourage companies, especially large and trans-national companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle


Promote public procurement practices that are sustainable in accordance with national policies and priorities


By 2030, ensure that people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature


Support developing countries to strengthen their scientific and technological capacities to move towards more sustainable patterns of consumption and production


Develop and implement tools to monitor sustainable development impacts for sustainable tourism which creates jobs, promotes local culture and products


Rationalise inefficient fossil fuel subsidies that encourage wasteful consumption by removing market distortions, in accordance with national circumstances, including by restructuring taxation and phasing out those harmful subsidies, where they exist, to reflect their environmental impacts, taking fully into account the specific needs and conditions of developing countries and minimising the possible adverse impacts on their development in a manner that protects the poor and the affected communities
