What is sustainable consumption?

"Sustainable consumption includes meeting the needs of present and future generations for goods and services in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable". (United Nations, 1995)

What is the link between sustainable consumption and production?

It is common to think of production and consumption as discrete stages in a product's life cycle chain, with production (an industrial activity) preceding consumption (a domestic activity). But production and consumption are inextricably interwoven. All production consumes resources and energy: to produce something requires that something must be consumed.

Where can I find more information?
