Indicators for sustainable consumption and production in the SDGs

SCP-main-header

This briefing proposes indicators to track global, national and local progress in moving towards sustainable consumption and production (SCP) as part of a new set of UN Sustainable Development Goals which are due to be finalised in September 2015.

Drawing on Bioregional’s practical experience and expertise, and years of engagement with sustainable development (SD) ┬áissues at the UN level, we see sustainable consumption and production as being at the core of SD.

To track and verify progress, we need robust indicators which can be used at many levels. We’ve put forward ┬áindicators which align with the proposed SDG targets that are most important to SCP and the criteria we’ve used to select them.
