RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION & PRODUCTION
Achieve the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources.
Reduce food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses.
Environmentally sound management of chemicals and all wastes throughout their life cycle, in accordance with agreed international frameworks, and significantly reduce their release to air, water and soil in order to minimize their adverse impacts on human health and the environment.
Reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
Encourage companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle.
Promote public procurement practices that are sustainable, in accordance with national policies and priorities.
Ensure that people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature.
Develop and implement tools to monitor sustainable development impacts for sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products.
A large share of the world population is still consuming far too little to meet even their basic needs. Halving the per capita of global food waste at the retailer and consumer levels is also important for creating more efficient production and supply chains. This can help with food security, and shift us towards a more resource efficient economy.
