The United Nation's definition of sustainable consumption refers to the use of services and related products to bring a better quality of life without increasing environmental degradation and without compromising the resource needs of future generations. Sustainable consumption is not only about reducing consumption and use of natural resources, it is also the awareness of the environmental and social impact of services and products across their life cycle, from product design, production, consumption to waste disposal and re-use.


Over the years, the Consumer Council has been dedicated to promoting sustainable consumption through a comprehensive array of activities, such as publishing sustainable consumption study reports, organising seminars and educational events, conducting tests and surveys and publishing related articles, to enhance consumers' knowledge of sustainable consumption and encourage all to build a sustainable consumption environment by putting it into practice in our daily lives.
