Assessing the potential of various instruments for sustainable consumption practises and greening of the market

Objective

Main objectives are:
- to identify, structure and assess instruments addressing/promoting sustainable consumption & greening of the market, with specific emphasis to innovative instruments;
- to identify and evaluate best practices and to develop policy strategies for transferring them;
- to carry out a workshop;
- to finalise insights by preparing a guideline for policy makers applicable as a type of a "toolbox";
- to prepare a scientific report and a summary.

After a pre-phase connected with an internal kick-off meeting, the first phase analyses policy instruments, measures and actions and the gained experiences in WP 2 "'Basic' instrumental overview". The instrumental overview is intended to be of a broader nature to collect insights into existing, but also discussed, proposed and/or rejected tools which have lead or could lead to a greening of the markets by addressing supply and/or demand. We will concentrate on promising tools and actions. The gained and collected information will be assessed along certain criteria developed beforehand in WP 3 "Assessment". WP 4 "Best practises and market transformation patterns" will bring together the most instructive findings and consider what could be learned from them. The key question behind that approach is to look for the patterns behind successful greening strategies. The second phase is dedicated to the potentials for transferring of the results and their dissemination.

WP 5 "Extension and transfer strategies" picks up the previous results and considers the findings and prepares strategies for the transfer of promising approaches. Results and proposals will be documented and discussed at a one-day workshop (WP 6 "Workshop") which will collect insights, opinions and experiences of a broader auditorium. The discussion and results of the workshop will be documented and will contribute to the update of the preliminary findings.
