UNEP on Sustainability Standards (May 2012)
Updates and Sector News
The United Nations Environment Program has put out a report entitled “Global outlook on Sustainable Consumption and Production Policies", summarizing how nations have tried to move towards sustainable consumption. The report is fairly long and has an academic feel, but contains case study pieces on voluntary standards such as Fairtrade, FSC, MSC and reporting initiatives such as the GRI. So for those with some spare time, a nice if theoretical summary!
