Sustainable Consumption

Woman checking food labelling

If climate mitigation and resource efficiency are to be successfully established, consumption and productions patterns in companies, politics and civil society must be made more sustainable in the long term. Taking stock of ecological and social criteria when buying products or services promotes sustainable markets and production. The dialogue processes and platforms for action designed by adelphi advocate sustainability in production and consumption: on behalf of national and international governments, we research the use of environmental factors in public procurement and pass on appropriate strategies and implementation tools to decision-makers. In addition, we identify innovative approaches to consumer policy, both nationally and internationally.
