Proliferation of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in Asia – the next 5 countries (SCP Outreach)

As of: October 2020

Objective and activities

In recent years, sustainable public procurement and environmental labelling have become increasingly important in South-eastern Asia. Aided by Thailand, the project supports the development and implementation of environmental labels, as well as sustainable consumption and production patterns in five developing Asian countries. It is geared to country-specific needs and focuses on strengthening institutions, specialist training courses, knowledge transfer and integrated solutions at regional level. The project also supports trans-national knowledge sharing events and stakeholder meetings to define core criteria for eco-labelling and Green Public Procurement (GPP) in the ASEAN Economic Community. It also supports the partner institutions in integrating climate-friendly and low-carbon criteria into eco-labels and analyses international best practices in the field of GPP to this end.
