The UN’s Sustainable Goal #12 is aimed at responsible consumption and production. Some of the main themes are looking at the way we produce and grow the products we use and making better choices in what we buy and who we buy from as consumers. The goal is to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, increase resource efficiency, and promote sustainable lifestyles.
Few UN facts and figures:
Each year, an estimated one-third of all food produced – equivalent to 1.3 billion tonnes worth around $1 trillion – ends up rotting in the bins of consumers and retailers or spoiling due to poor transportation and harvesting practices.
If people worldwide switched to energy-efficient light bulbs the world would save US$120 billion annually.
Consumers are now looking at who they buy from and what good they do for the world. A KPMG report states that of the largest 250 companies in the world, 93% of them report on sustainability1.
