Carl Dalhammar contributes to background reports to the Stockholm+50 conference

Stockholm+50 logo.

Stockholm+50 takes place June 2-3, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the UN Environmental Programme. The ambition is to commemorate the jubilee and 50 years of global environmental action but also to step up the pace of the transition to a more sustainable future.

One paper, written together with researchers at KTH in Stockholm, is titled “Making governance better for fair and sustainable consumption”. It discusses the need for new, progressive developments to curb consumption levels and ensure that the World’s resources are more evenly distributed.  

The second report, “The Circular Economy: Towards a new business paradigm with support from public policy”, is written together with Mattias Lindahl at Linköping University. It discusses some key issues we need to address to move towards a circular economy. It also highlights the need to connect the business and policy developments related to the circular economy to other sustainability fields, such as climate change and chemicals, and to place it within the broader context of sustainable consumption. 

A background report for the conference, summarizing the key messages of all background papers, is found here:

IIIEE alumni Johanna Lissinger Peitz is ambassador for the conference.
