Mainstreaming Sustainable Consumption in Asia: The Solutions (Part Two)

Consumers can make a significant contribution towards the creation of a sustainable society just by taking more care over the decisions they make when buying, using, or discarding a product or service. But to make informed decisions, business needs to provide information and opportunity.

This booklet sets out the challenges (in Part One) that exist today for consumers and producers, and shows how they can come together with governments and NGOs to overcome the obstacles - such as lack of trust or unavailability of green choices - and jointly contribute to the 'green leap' that Asia needs (in Part Two).
