SCP Policies

target 12.1

Implement the 10-year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production, all countries taking action, with developed countries taking the lead, taking into account the development and capabilities of developing countries.

Indicator 12.1.1

Number of countries developing, adopting or implementing policy instruments aimed at supporting the shift to sustainable consumption and production.

Monitoring the shift to sustainable consumption and production (SCP) is critical to identifying emerging trends and strategic gaps, demonstrating and showcasing the benefits of sustainable consumption and production to build greater momentum for change, and guiding and supporting the implementation of policies and practices. In this regard, SDG 12.1.1 monitors the development, adoption, and implementation of policy instruments for SCP at national level. Policy instruments for SCP refer to means – methodologies, measures or interventions – designed and implemented to reduce the environmental impacts of consumption and production patterns, with a view of generating economic and/or social benefits.
