The aim of sustainable consumption and production is to combine, in the goods or services produced, greater respect for the environment, social progress and economic performance. The sustainable consumption and production policy also aims to inform and raise the awareness of consumers (households, shops, public purchasers).
FFEM integrates this dimension by targeting the main issues related to each of its strategic priorities, which include:
- The development of the territories-industries link,
- The promotion of the “3R” doctrine for waste (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle),
- The promotion of sustainable mobility in relation to spatial planning,
- The promotion of climate-energy territorial approaches, with a focus on energy efficiency in buildings (bioclimatic habitat) and renewable energy sources.
Furthermore, FFEM gives priority to projects whose objective is to promote eco-design, fair trade, environmental logos, eco-labels and environmental certification, sustainable public procurement, the circular economy and the transition towards sustainable lifestyles which promote changes in the behavior of producers and consumers, in particular through education and training for product designers.
