Sustainable Consumption and Production

The key objective of Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) is to generate economic growth and welfare without depleting resources or degrading the environment. SCP must involve life cycle thinking about improving overall environmental performance. In addition, consumers need to make informed choices and create the demand for sustainable products (source).

Chemical Leasing supports SCP in several ways. Production processes are optimised with the support of the supplier, and fewer chemicals are consumed. Promotion of the Chemical Leasing business model among industrial stakeholders and the broader society may also create awareness about the need for more sustainable industrial solutions, which may encourage the concept of SCP in general.
