Toolbox with 62 examples of sustainable consumption

Consumption credits for meat, come-and-try-it campaigns for night trains and product deposits – a report from Mistra Sustainable Consumption lists 62 inspiring examples of sustainable consumption in the areas of food, home furnishings and holidays.

The report, 62 sätt att möjliggöra hållbar konsumtion (62 Ways to Enable Sustainable Consumption), is a compilation of ideas and proposals that have been mentioned in Mistra Sustainable Consumption’s research reports and scientific articles. The idea is not that the examples, or ‘facilitators, as they are called, are seen as recommendations. Instead, the report should function as a toolbox, providing inspiring examples to change and steer people towards sustainable consumption.

The report’s intended audience includes politicians at national and local levels, decision-makers in the public sector and in business, and organisations in civil society. The facilitators also provide a foundation for the programme’s planned research into the effectiveness, packaging and acceptance of instruments for change.

The authors are Åsa Svenfelt, Eskil Engström, Hanna Eggestrand Vaughan and Emma Gerdin.
