SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production
The SDG 12 is a universal and urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns by 2030. The goal, being adopted in 2015 is a follow-up of the partially achieved millennium goals.
Among others, this goal includes the implementation of the 10-year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production, the achievement of the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources, reduction of global food waste, the environmentally sound management of chemicals and all wastes, and the substantial reduction of waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse. The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDG 12 in every context.
