Executive Summary of the Secretary General’s Progress report on the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns
The negative impacts of the unsustainable global systems of production and consumption on climate, biodiversity and pollution have continued unabated. The linear take-make-throw away production and consumption systems that drive our global economy have meant that prosperity and depletion of natural resources and the attendant negative impacts to people and planet have gone hand in hand.
In the executive summary, the following four actions on advancing sustainable consumption and production are presented:
- First, think about Sustainable Consumption and Production as a system influencing socio-economic, climate, biodiversity, pollution and waste outcomes.
- Second, leave no one behind and join a global movement on SCP that is inclusive and just.
- Third, inspire action on SCP through enhanced science, monitoring and reporting.
- Fourth, act for the future that we want, and the future generations deserve.
