Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. Cut per capita global food waste in half: manage chemicals and all wastes throughout their life cycle, and reduce their release to air, water and soil.
Changes in consumption and production patterns can help to promote the decoupling of economic growth and human well-being from resource use and environmental impact. They can also trigger the transformations envisaged in global commitments on biodiversity, the climate, and sustainable development in general. The COVID-19 pandemic provides a window of opportunity for exploring more inclusive and equitable development models that are underpinned by sustainable consumption and production.
