The 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP) generates collective impact through multi-stakeholder programmes and partnerships, which develop, replicate and scale up SCP policies and initiatives at all levels. 10YFP consists of six programmes: Sustainable Public Procurement, Consumer Information for SCP, Sustainable Tourism, Sustainable Lifestyles and Education, Sustainable Buildings and Construction, and Sustainable Food Systems.
The idea that fundamental changes in our production and consumption patterns are indispensable to achieving long-term sustainable development was discussed at the Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012. The realization that a global shift towards SCP would require the commitment of diverse actors across the globe spurred Heads of State at Rio+20 to adopt the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP).
The 10YFP is led by UNEP. EU member states co-lead specific programmes and support coordination of the programme’s overall implementation, reporting, information sharing and external communication.
The European Commission co-funds the 10YFP secretariat of the programme. The EC co-funding enables among others coordination of the 10YFP in the context of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, development of the 10YFP programmes for achieving collective impact and facilitate SCP knowledge sharing, cooperation and outreach.
