Workshop: 'Sustainable Production and Consumption: Are we making the link?'

Date: 
Friday, May 31, 2013 - 10:00 - 16:00
Location: 
Beckit Room, Oxford University Centre for the Environment

Given the globalization of resource production and consumption, purchasing behaviours and land use decisions in one part of the world have widespread impacts on production systems elsewhere. Yet these two sides of the production/consumption supply chain are often treated as separate, decoupled policy problems. As part of this decoupling, there is inadequate attention to how global demand for the verification of sustainability shapes the types of production systems recognized as ³green² as well as overall levels and distribution of global consumption.
