Sub-goal 12.1 calls for the implementation of the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP), which covers the period 2012 to 2022. It is intended to initiate, coordinate and support activities for the implementation of sustainable consumption and production patterns at the global, regional and national levels.

The ten-year project brings together programmes in six areas: sustainable consumer information, sustainable building and housing, sustainable public procurement, sustainable tourism, sustainable lifestyles and education, and sustainable food systems. The Federal Government, represented by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), took over the chairmanship of the 10YFP Executive Board after its founding in 2012 along with the Mexican government. Since that time, it has been actively supporting its establishment as the central UN institution promoting sustainable consumption and production patterns. In an important step to further development, the One Planet Network was founded in 2018 as a global information and innovation hub for the worldwide transformation to sustainable consumption and production patterns. The BMU, the Government of Indonesia and Consumers International also manage the consumer information program. In addition, the BMU is particularly active in programs for sustainable tourism and sustainable procurement. Tasks here include developing guidelines for credible consumer information at the UN level, supporting ambitious labelling systems and disseminating best practices. 

Knowing how many countries explicitly include sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in their national policies is critical to measuring the implementation of the SDG 12.1 on an international level. In this context, the German National Programme on Sustainable Consumption (NPNK) deserves particular mention; it is a cross-departmental action plan adopted by the federal cabinet in 2016. The plan describes ideas and concrete measures for key consumer sectors that contribute to the mainstreaming of sustainable consumption patterns. The NPNK is characterised by the fact that its implementation implies, in particular, the involvement of civil society, research and private industry. The Competence Centre on Sustainable Consumption (KNK) was founded to this end. Working with the subordinate authorities of the ministries, it serves as a service point for information and supports the National Sustainable Consumption Network (NNNK).

Competence Centre for Sustainable Consumption (KNK)

 

Whether it's food, mobility or clothing, consumption as a cross-sectional issue encompasses all areas of our everyday lives. In accordance with that, many ministries and stakeholders are involved in promoting sustainable consumption in Germany. The Competence Center for Sustainable Consumption was established to support their cooperation, the networking of activities, and the exchange and provision of knowledge. Subordinate authorities of several participating ministries work closely together in the Competence Center, and the office is located at the Federal Environment Agency.

SAVE FOOD Initiative

On 27 January 2011 in Berlin, Germany SAVE FOOD was introduced to the public by the partners Messe Düsseldorf and the FAO. SAVE FOOD puts the issue of global food losses onto the political and economic agenda. Together with members from business, politics and civil society, SAVE FOOD aims to drive innovation, promote interdisciplinary dialogue and initiate debate in order to generate solutions to reduce food waste, across the entire value chain "from the field to the plate".

German Partnership for Sustainable Mobility (GPSM)

The German Partnership for Sustainable Mobility (GPSM) is serving as a guide for sustainable mobility and green logistics solutions from Germany. As a platform for exchanging knowledge, expertise and experiences, GPSM supports the transformation towards sustainability in developing and emerging countries. It serves as a network of information from academia, businesses, civil society and associations.

National Programme on Sustainable Consumption

The National Programme for Sustainable Consumption (NPNK) is a step towards implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development from a consumer and product perspective. It aims to contribute to bringing our consumption patterns and lifestyles in line with ecological and economic limits. The programme identifies goals and needs for action and explains previous activities of the Federal Government in the field of sustainable consumption. Based on the guiding principle of sustainability, central ideas for a policy of sustainable consumption are developed. The programme contains 170 measures for the overarching approaches to action as well as the areas of need in order to systematically strengthen sustainable consumption.
The NPNK was further developed on 3 May 2021. The 45 measures and targets adopted by the Committee of State Secretaries for Sustainable Development prioritise and focus the Federal Government's existing programme for sustainable consumption from 2016. The measures relate to the areas of mobility, housing and household, nutrition, work and office, clothing, and leisure and tourism, as well as cross-cutting measures, such as those to tap the potential of digitalisation for sustainable consumption. They are intended to contribute to halving consumption-related greenhouse gas emissions per inhabitant by 2030, among other things.

ERA-MIN 2 - Research and Innovation Programme on Raw Materials to Foster Circular Economy

The implementation of circular economy and especially the closure of cycles for raw materials requires collaboration beyond national borders. Therefore, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research promotes the joint transnational calls of the pan European R&I programme ERA-MIN. Partners of transnational consortia should provide a significant contribution to the transnational added value of collaboration. The scope of the joint calls is to promote research addressing thematic areas of the circular economy (sustainable exploration, extraction and processing technologies, recycling, substitution of critical raw materials).The implementation of circular economy and especially the closure of cycles for raw materials requires collaboration beyond national borders.
