Global Cleaner Production & Sustainable Consumption Conference: Accelerating the Transition to Equitable Post Fossil-Carbon Societies

1 - 4 November 2015 | Sitges, Barcelona, Spain

Elsevier will host the Global Cleaner Production & Sustainable Consumption Conference to celebrate more than two decades of the Journal of Cleaner Production, with an international scientific team drawn from more than fifty regional and global sustainability networks.

The Global Cleaner Production & Sustainable Consumption Conference is being designed to be holistic, integrative, trans-disciplinary, and trans-sectorial in nature. It will focus on strategic, and preventative concepts and approaches, which are being implemented to speed up the great transition to post-fossil carbon societies, and that are ecologically, ethically, socially, culturally, and economically sustainable.

During this conference, the participants will discuss theoretical and build upon practical concepts, methods, tools, policies, and examples being applied in different contexts (e.g. global warming, chemical pollution, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, water and food security, erosion of social systems, human population growth, and other sustainability challenges).

This Global Conference will catalyze dialogue among leaders from academia, industry, business, government, and non-governmental organizations, to accelerate the application of knowledge, experiences, and examples that are helping families, communities, cities, and regions to make the transition to dematerialized and post-fossil carbon societies.
