Sustainability and circularity of resource utilisation is crucial at a time when consumption patterns are contributing to environmental degradation and exacerbating social inequalities. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 12, emphasise the importance of sustainable consumption and production. The G20 plays a critical role in promoting sustainability and has endorsed initiatives like the Circular Carbon Economy (CCE) and the LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment) framework. Integrating these frameworks can encourage sustainable consumption at the individual and societal levels. The G20 should support LiFE programmes, promote CCE practices, encourage circular business models, and foster sustainable behaviour especially by developing national action plans for sustainable consumption and production, and promoting cross- sectoral collaboration.
