10:35 to 11:35

This high-level panel will debate the urgent action needed to fine-tune and scale-up new patterns of consumption and production. Topics include the role of sustainable consumption in the new European Green Deal, highlighting the impact of purchasing decisions of EU citizens on the environment and on the livelihoods of individuals in third countries. Information on innovative initiatives at the EU level – such as the EU Cities for Fair and Ethical Trade Award (focusing on the role of cities as global sustainable trade and consumption centres) – will feed the discussion, as will other essential ingredients for sustainable trade such as traceability, transparency and the climate resilience of value chains. Achieving progress in these areas is a major challenge – especially for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in third countries – and the aim of this panel is to propose specific solutions to deliver successfully on the European Green Deal and Sustainable Development Goal 12 on&
