Stakeholder consultation on the CI-SCP's Guidelines for Providing Product Sustainability Information
Get involved to help shape a new set of Guidelines to improve the way consumers receive information on products’ sustainability. We’re asking for your comments to make these Guidelines as useful and applicable as possible, to ensure their understanding by public and private sector providers of information, and ultimately to benefit consumers.
The draft "Guidelines for Providing Product Sustainability Information" have been developed in a consultative process under a CI-SCP working group, led by UNEP and the International Trade Center. The aim is to provide clear guidance for product-related sustainability information for all regions and companies of all sizes, and over time to create global consensus in this area.
New report on indicators for measuring SCP progress towards the SDGs!
The report was produced for the 10YFP by Statistics Sweden and the Ministry of Environment of Chile. It constitutes an initial proposal to support the monitoring of SCP- related targets of the SDGs, using the SEEA framework which facilitates the connection of data across the environment and the economy that can effectively inform policy-making and other actions. The full report is currently available in English, and the executive summary in English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic.
