Summary:imageThrough a Business Dialogue event, convened on our behalf by the University of Cambridge Programme for Industry, the Sustainable Consumption Roundtable heard from more than thirty senior managers from retailers and big-brand manufacturers about what business and government could do to mainstream sustainable products...
Recommendations:1. Consumers alone cannot or will not change consumption patterns sufficiently
2. Business can and does do a lot and, if it is to do more, it must be as part of mainstream business operations
3. Government should lead by example, and support best practice
4. Build a broader (cross party) consensus
