Guidelines of UNEP: Providing product sustainability information for Consumers

The growth of sustainable products’ market is being hampered by greenwashing declarations and a series of inaccurate, unclear, incomparable, unproven, unreliable and unrelated information is surrounding consumers when they need to make sustainable consumption choices. The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the International Trade Center (ITC) are seeking global consultation on Guidelines for providing product sustainability information to solve the causes of all mentioned situations.

In order to collect comments from organizations and individuals on this Draft of Guidelines, synthesize and transfer to UNEP and ITC, CUTS Hanoi Resource Center, in collaboration with Vietnam Standards and Consumers Association (VINASTAS), organized a workshop on “Guidelines of UNEP: Providing product sustainability information for Consumers” in Hanoi on October 7th, 2016. The workshop was held successfully with the numerous participations of representatives of consumer associations in Vietnam.
