Project on the Evaluation of the National Program on Sustainable ConsumptionConPolicy starts new project on sustainable consumption for the German Federal Environment Agency

The German Federal Environment Agency has commissioned ConPolicy in collaboration with the Öko-Institute, the Technical University of Berlin and Prof Dr Lucia Reisch (Copenhagen Business School and Zeppelin University) to evaluate the measures proposed in the National Program on Sustainable Consumption and to make recommendations how the program can be developed further.

In early 2016, the German Federal Government has adopted the National Program on Sustainable Consumption which lists 172 measures how Germany wants to achieve more sustainable consumption patterns. The program substantiates the German Sustainability Strategy and shall make a key contribution towards Germany achieving the internationally agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – especially SDG#12 promoting sustainable production and consumption patterns.
