Consumption and production are driving economic forces in today's society, however, currently we are not utilizing the planet's natural resources responsibly. As a consequence we are at risk of continuing to use them in a way that destroys our planet and endangers the systems on which our very survival depends. In response to these worrying developments the ultimate goal of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 12 is to establish ‘Responsible Consumption & Production’, and in order to achieve this goal current and insightful research on the topic is of vital importance. Therefore within this collection we are proud to showcase some of the most pioneering research and expert blog posts dedicated to achieving this goal.
We invite you to browse our SDG12-related publications, blog posts and interviews - and learn how to publish your research with Springer Nature.
