September 2021- 20th European Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production
The 2021 conference is organized by “StadtLABOR” a SME working on Innovations for Urban Quality of Life (https://www.stadtlaborgraz.at/), in cooperation with the ERSCP Society (https://erscp.eu/). ERSCP stands for the European Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production, a society that organizes and promotes activities in the field of Sustainable Consumption and Production. Part of this are a series of conferences in the field of Sustainable Consumption and Production and Cleaner Production since 1994. erscp21 covers a number of UN Sustainable Development Goals. Goal 12 “Responsible Consumption and Production” meets the core target of the conference. But many other issues are in the focus as well, like SDG 4 “Quality of Education”, SDG 6 “Clean Water and Sanitation”, SDG 7 “Affordable and Cleaner Energy”, SDG 9 “Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure”, SDG 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities” and SDG 13 “Climate Action”.erscp21 will consider the possibilities to reduce the emission of climate-relevant gases during production as well as to reduce upstream emissions by changing consumer behaviour. It will be essential that cities – where already more than half of the world’s population lives – and economic sectors reduce emissions, adapt to climate change, and take resilience measures. Changing consumption behaviour will be an important issue in building a closed cycle economy, especially urban closed cycles including the forced utilization of local resources.
The Resources Innovation Center Leoben is part of this congress with a plenary speech with the title "EURECA-PRO, The European University on Responsible Consumption and Production: An Alliance for Sustainability" presented by Susanne Feiel the head of RIC Leoben.
