Producing more with less and promoting sustainable consumption
The Economy Division works to boost resource-efficient growth and innovation to break the links between economic growth and environmental degradation.
We seek to:
- Increase resource efficiency and reduce pollution over product life cycles and along supply chains.
- Encourage public policies and private-sector initiatives that promote increased investment in efficient, clean and safe industrial production methods.
- Shift consumer choice towards more resource-efficient and environmentally friendly products and services.
