Responsible Consumption and Production

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Our planet has provided us with an abundance of natural resources. But we have not utilized them responsibly and currently consume far beyond what our planet can provide. We must learn how to use and produce in sustainable ways that will reverse the harm that we have inflicted on the planet.

Case Studies

Innocent Drinks

Innocent drinks have been using recycled plastic in their bottles for 15 years and every single thing they make is 100% recyclable.

In 2018 Innocent created their most sustainable bottle yet that is made from 50% recycled plastic and 15% plant plastic.

The plant plastic is made with a by-product of sugar cane called molasses. They are working on a way to use no oil-based plastic at all in the future, making their bottles 100% renewable. At the moment plastic is the most sustainable option for Innocent drinks bottles. It has a lower carbon footprint than glass and is much easier to recycle than cartons.

By 2020 they plan to make all of their bottles made out of 100% renewable material.

Patagonia

Patagonia

The outdoor company is committed to having at least 75% of its materials sourced from sustainable places, and it donates 1% of profits to groups cutting carbon emissions and helping the environment.

Instead of giving large sums to a handful of causes, they give modest grants—which typically range between $2,500 - $15,000—to hundreds of groups every year for whom this money makes a world of difference. As a company that uses resources and produces waste, they recognize the impact on the environment and feel a responsibility to give back.

IKEA: 100% Circular by 2030

IKEA is committed to making a positive impact on people and the planet. Their ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in their products will be based on renewable or recycled material.

Ikea want to make it easier for customers to acquire, care for and pass on products in circular ways, such as repairing, reusing, reselling, and recycling them. To do this, they are committed to designing all of our products to be 100% circular from the beginning, using only renewable or recycled materials, and to developing circular capabilities in their supply chain.

They’ve already started the journey towards this goal with a plan to replace single-use plastic in their range and by using different kinds of sustainable plastic in an increasing number of products.
