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).

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.

Resource-efficient Circular Economy - Innovative Product Cycles (ReziProK)

With the funding guideline "Resource-efficient Circular Economy - Innovative Product Cycles" (ReziProK), the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is pursuing the goal of contributing to the implementation of a resource-efficient recycling management system with the aid of research and development. The aim is to increase overall raw material productivity, avoid waste and reduce environmental pollution.

Appreciation and protection of biodiversity in politics, economy and society

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds research in order to increase the significance of ecosystem services and biodiversity at entrepreneurial and societal level by developing innovative assessment concepts, governance structures and (policy) measures - and thus effectively contributes to the conservation of biodiversity. The research is highly application-oriented. Practice partners from industry, trade, agriculture, municipalities and public administration as well as civil society are involved in the projects. This means that the results of the research can develop direct practical relevance and contribute directly to the conservation of biological diversity in Germany.

CLIENT II – International Partnerships for Sustainable Innovations

The target of the funding programme is to support international partnerships in the areas of climate, environment and energy.
CLIENT II puts a spotlight on demand-oriented research and development collaborations with select newly industrializing and developing countries with interesting markets for German suppliers of technology. The envisaged projects are to give an effective impetus to reduce environmental pollution in the partner countries, to use natural resources both wisely and economically, to supply safe, clean and affordable energy to all segments of the population, and to make advances in global climate protection and in the adaptation to climate change and natural hazards.
