Rationale

GSAP

Measures are needed to address patterns of overconsumption through increasing efficiency, limiting waste, and reducing overall demand – especially in developed countries – to limit their negative impacts on wild species.

Actions

16.1. Minimize impacts of food production on species by reducing consumption of animal protein, and eliminating food waste.

16.2. Increase use of eco-labelling to help consumers make informed and sustainable choices.

16.3. Support use of local produce.
