Sustainable Consumption is a focus theme in the Environmental Action Plan 2009-2012 of the Nordic Council of Ministers. As stressed in the Plan, the Nordic countries form a joint market with the same product range and similar patterns of consumption. Hence, the countries can together contribute to developing environmentally adapted production meth-ods and stimulating the interaction between environmentally conscious consumptionand an environment oriented product range. This report presents 22 different projects, realized recently in the Nordic countries, that have promoted sustainable life styles.

Summary

The mitigation of climate change creates huge demands on the lifestyles of individuals. In today’s societies, a sustainable lifestyle is not easy to achieve, even with reasonable effort, and there is a need to evaluate the instruments used to promote sustainable lifestyles and human behaviours. There is also a need to create new policy tools and projects that would make a sustainable lifestyle easier to achieve and more desirable.
