Sub-goal 12.2 aims to create sustainable production and consumption patterns in order to use resources more efficiently and conserve resources. Various political programs have been launched in Germany to promote the conservation of resources.

One of the milestones is the German Resource Efficiency Program (ProgRess I/II), which promotes innovation, global responsibility, the circular economy and an orientation towards qualitative growth. The German National Programme on Sustainable Consumption (NPNK) promotes the participation of users from all population demographics in sustainable consumption. The programme applies a life-cycle perspective to products and services, taking into account behaviour and lifestyle. Sectoral programmes like the ‘Climate Protection Offensive of the German Trade Association (HDE)’ or the ‘Climate-Active Municipality’, which are primarily geared towards climate protection but also have a positive effect on the conservation of resources, continue to provide support. Programmes like ‘Impulses for Industrial Resource Efficiency (r+Impuls)’ and others highlight the major potential for innovation in the industrial sector.

The German National Sustainability Strategy covers resource conservation via the indicator total raw material productivity, among others. The Federal Statistical Office is working to expand the indicator system. The material-based indicators ‘Domestic Material Consumption’ (DMC) and ‘Raw Material Consumption’ (RMC), i.e. the raw material footprint, are already being recorded and available on the National Reporting Platform (NRP). This means the Germany National Sustainability Strategy can take into account all the indicators specified in SDG 12.2 for the international level.

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".

EWAV (European Week for Waste Reduction)

The European Week for Waste Reduction (Europäische Woche der Abfallvermeidung = EWAV) is Europe's largest communication campaign on waste prevention and reuse. It takes place annually in the last week of November across the continent and beyond. The aim is to sensitise all Europeans to the need to conserve resources and to show practical ways out of the throwaway society.
The campaign was initiated in 2009 by the European Commission, and in 2010 the European Waste Prevention Week was launched in Germany.

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.

National Programme on Sustainable Consumption

The National Programme on Sustainable Consumption was adopted by the Federal Government in 2016. It formulates approaches for the implementation of the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development from the consumer and product perspective. It aims to contribute to reconciling consumption patterns and lifestyle with ecological and economic limits. The national programme identifies and defines objectives, principles of action, fields of action, and implementation strategies in order to systematically expand and promote sustainable consumption in its various facets.
