What is the level of consciousness and behavior of Brazilians towards conscious consumption? What are the barriers and drivers for more sustainable practices? What is the perception and expectation of Brazilians regarding corporate social and environmental responsibility? These were some of the questions answered by "Akatu 2018 Survey - Conscious Consumption Brazilian Background".
To strengthen good practices in the field of sustainable consumption and production, UN Environment and the International Trade Centre launched the brand new Guidelines for Providing Product Sustainability Information.
The Road Testing of the Guidelines was an opportunity for companies and standard-setting organisations to contribute to the implementation of SDG 12 in an effective and practical way, while at the same time self-assessing the way they are communicating with consumers about sustainability. This also ensured that road testers were up to date with edgy references and promoted their efforts on consumer information internationally. Road testers have the opportunity to be listed in the publication that will be soon launched by UN Environment and also have their good practices featured on this document.
