The Consumer Information Programme has launched a new 5 page brochure which gives an overview of the Programme describing its objectives, key work areas, structure and relevant stakeholders. It also provides information on how to join the Programme.
Consumer Information Programme (CI-SCP)
The One Planet network’s Consumer Information Programme for Sustainable Consumption and Production (CI-SCP) serves as a global platform to support the provision of quality information on goods and services, and the identification and implementation of the most effective strategies to engage consumers in sustainable consumption.
Key work areas of the CI-SCP:
The CI-SCP raises the profile of relevant policies, initiatives and partnerships, building synergies and cooperation between different stakeholders and implementing projects to leverage resources towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 12 (SDG 12).
Sustainable Consumption and Production is about doing more and better with less. It is also about decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation, increasing resource efficiency and promoting sustainable lifestyles.
Target 12.8: “By 2030, ensure that people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature” highlights the importance of education for sustainable development. The CI-SCP works with governments, businesses and civil society to improve the provision of credible sustainability information on products and services, as defined in the Guidelines for Providing Product Sustainability Information. The Programme provides and facilitates access to practical and comprehensive information to guide and support consumers’ choices for sustainable products and services.
