Report on sustainable production shows further efforts are needed

According to a new Global Outlook Report published by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in collaboration with the European Commission,  despite successful initiatives to promote sustainable consumption and production are flourishing around the globe, further efforts are needed to embed such practices in existing policy frameworks.  The Report, which has been released  at Stockholm+40, an event marking the 40th anniversary of the UN Conference on the Human Environment, presents an overview of efforts worldwide to shift towards sustainable consumption and production (SCP) patterns.
While the EU Commissioner for Environment,  Janez Potočnik hopes this report  will encourage “fruitful partnerships worldwide", Achim Steiner, UN Under-Secretary General and UNEP Executive Director , highlights that the report shows that governments are not starting from zero , as many of the transformations towards sustainable societies are flourishing within countries and communities across the globe. “Rio+20 offers the opportunity to accelerate and scale-up these policies and projects in order to secure the prospects and prosperity of seven billion people, rising to over nine billion by 2050."
