Every day consumers- whether individuals, businesses or institutions- make purchases that leave an “environmental and social footprint.” Countries and other stakeholders are coming together at the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development to explore ways to grow our economies while improving living conditions and protecting our environment.
The session seeks to promote more sustainable consumption and production by creating demand through commitments to sustainable procurement and promoting the development of open and transparent access to credible data to help green supply chains, including through expanded use of product life-cycle data systems and tools.
