Collective Impact for Sustainable Consumption and a Circular Economy

This session addresses how businesses and governments can combine their efforts in providing much needed infrastructure, goods and services in order to offer sustainable options for consumers. It also gives considerable stress to the demand side: what kind of information, pricing and other incentives are needed in order to make sustainable choices attractive for consumers?
