18th European Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production, 2017

The ERSCP is one of Europe's most remarkable conferences in its field and has taken place periodically since 1994. ERSCPs favour discussions about the key issues in sustainable consumption and production; the exchange of thoughts, knowledge, experiences and SCP proposals; and the creation of a European (also worldwide) community of research and practice in sustainable consumption and production. The main goal of the ERSCPs is to encourage discussion amongst stakeholders involved in sustainable consumption and production: businesses, public institutions, universities, institutes and research centres, NGOs, SMEs, professional associations, decision-makers, etc.

We plan to bring together more than 400 stakeholders, from businesses, cities and communities, public institutions, universities, institutes and research centres, NGOs, SMEs, professional associations, decision-makers.

The 18th European Roundtable on Sustainable Consumption and Production (ERSCP 2017) is being built upon successful previous ERSCP conferences, such as the ones in Istanbul (Turkey), Bregenz (Austria), Delft (Netherlands) and Portoroz (Slovenia).
