Why a database on sustainable consumption and production on North America?
The NASCP Database aims at facilitating cooperation among organizations in Canada, United States and Mexico that are interested in promoting sustainable consumption and production. For the first time, Internet users can access a single website to find information about sustainable consumption and production initiatives and programmes throughout North America.
The database is also intended as a resource for citizens to learn about projects or initiatives that they can support, join, or replicate in their own community.
The database currently contains over 200 entries for initiatives and programmes that address a wide range of important issues such as advertising and marketing, children and youth, ceaner production, consumer products, lifestyle choices, organic products, poverty, procurement, tourism, trade, transport, and waste. The broad diversity of initiatives, projects, and programmes featured in the Database highlights the willingness in North America to move toward sustainable consumption and production patterns.
