SDG 12: Responsible Consumption & Production

Sustainable consumption and production is the use of natural resources in a way that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This is the focus of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (UN SDG) 12, a goal that calls for a major shift in the way we produce and consume goods and services.
