About the programme
The Consumer Information Programme (CI-SCP) implements and supports projects; undertakes research; identifies and encourages policies; and provides collaboration opportunities for anyone looking to engage and assist consumers in sustainable consumption.
In the spotlight
The CI-SCP is led by the Environment Ministries of Germany and Indonesia, and Consumers International.
The programme is supported by a multi-stakeholder advisory committee, which provides technical and strategic advice; and a network of partners implementing projects and contributing to working groups.
