Goal 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

12 - Responsible consumption and production

A growing population is increasing the demand for already constrained natural resources. Sustainable consumption and production is fundamental to a sustainable and equitable future by “doing more and better with less”: increasing economic gains and quality of life, while reducing resource use and degradation.

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need.

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to promote sustainable production and consumption:
  • Educate local communities, particularly youths on the importance of environmental conservation to ensure natural resources are conserved for the long-term (Target 12.8)
  • Provide training on improved production practices that avoid destruction of natural resources e.g. conservation agricultural practices to improve land productivity (Targets 12.2, 12.8, 12.a)
  • Support communities to adopt viable alternatives to improve and diversify income e.g. establish micro-enterprises and improve access to markets, to reduce dependence on extractive activities (Target 12.8)
  • Enhance access to more efficient technologies to reduce community impact on the environment e.g. fuel-efficient cookstoves to reduce emissions and pressure on local forests for firewood (Target 12.2)

Projects that align with SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production

A number of carbon finance projects engage households and communities to realise the value of protecting ecosystems and turn this into an economically viable way of life.

Below are a sample of such projects. If you'd like to find out more about a particular project, follow the link.
