The 10 YFP - 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production
Adopted in 2012 at the UN World Summit on Sustainable Development, the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP) is a global commitment to accelerate the shift towards sustainable consumption and production in both developed and developing countries.
Sustainable consumption and production has been included as a stand-alone goal (SDG 12) of the 2030 Sustainable Development agenda, and Target 12.1 calls for the implementation of the 10YFP.
The One Planet Network
The One Planet network has formed to implement the commitment of the 10YFP. It is a multi-stakeholder partnership for sustainable development, generating collective impact through its six programmes: Public Procurement, Buildings and Construction, Tourism, Food Systems, Consumer Information, and Lifestyles and Education.
The One Planet network is an open partnership, and countries including all relevant stakeholders and organisations are invited to join and actively engage. The strategic objective of the One Planet network over the period 2018-2022 is to be recognised as the lead mechanism to support and accelerate the shift to sustainable consumption and production patterns, becoming the leading implementation mechanism for Goal 12 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Achieving sustainable consumption and production will deliver not only SDG 12, but simultaneously contribute to the achievement of almost all of the other SDGs, directly or indirectly. While a stand-alone goal (SDG 12) has been included, SCP should be seen as an enabler for the implementation of a range of other goals and many of their targets. Actions and policies required to achieve the objective of SDG 12 aim to decouple economic growth from resource use and range of other impacts on the environment and their associated effects on poverty eradication and shared prosperity – this is the enabling effect of the shift to sustainable consumption and production patterns.
In 2018, UN Environment and other partners developed Goodlife Goals. The Good Life Goals are a set of personal actions that people around the world can take to help support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are lifestyle asks for individuals that are carefully aligned with the SDGs’ 169 targets and indicators.
Due to the breadth of the One Planet network, counting already hundreds of organisations across all regions, a knowledge management platform has been set up as a go-to hub for SDG 12, where stakeholders can find and share information and connect with one another.

Nordic Best Practices in 10 YFP
The “Nordic Best Practices in 10 YFP – Relevant for UNEP 10YFP on sustainable tourism and consumer information” by Anna Hillgrén, Marika Bröckl, Laura Descombes, Venla Kontiokari and Mikko Halonen is the second of three reports in the TemaNord series showcasing Nordic experiences in promoting sustainable consumption and production (SCP). The 50+ examples presented in the three reports display a wide array of opportunities and actors that can deliver required change, including public and private sector actors, the research community, NGOs, city planners, and civil society champions of change.
The report Nordic best practices: Relevant for UNEP 10YFP on sustainable tourism and information presents nineteen initiatives on the themes of sustainable tourism and consumer information. They are presented in a manner designed to facilitate a comparison of their respective strengths, key results, and novelty as well as to draw lessons learned of each particular case.
The eleven cases in the theme Sustainable Lifestyles and Education consist of different projects and programs designed to guide people towards a more sustainable lifestyle. The case target groups range from preschool and schoolchildren, office workers and start-up companies to citizens of a city or the entire nation. The Sustainable Public Procurement theme consists of eight cases, where the focus is on the public procurer in different organisations and at different levels, including a city, a region or a country. The cases include a local model of circular economy, systematic procurement based on an environmental strategy, and a nationwide network of knowledge sharing. Cases where demand of more sustainable solutions has affected markets are also included, such as demand for sustainable energy, public transport and cleaning services.
The cases have also been added into the UN Environment's 10 Year Frame-work Program (10YFP) information platform, the SCP Clearinghouse, a hub dedicated to knowledge sharing, cooperation and innovation for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) implementation around the world.
