This project’s overall objective is to support India in the implementation of the UN global Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) agenda. This will be accomplished by facilitating the adaption of international standards and business practices on resource efficiency.

The initiative will focus on abiotic resources (metals and minerals) with three major components:

  • Assessing India’s current and future use of resources. Based on the assessment studies, strategies and action plans for resource efficiency will be prepared and initiated for implementation.
  • Facilitating partnerships and networking between European and Indian businesses and stakeholders on resource efficiency in sectors of interest.
  • Raising awareness on the need for resource efficient approaches among key government and non-government organizations, businesses, students, media and the general public through promotion of standards and business best-practices on resource efficiency.
