Delivering RECP towards the Sustainable Development Goals 2030

Building on 20 years of successful implementation of Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) at the global level, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), in cooperation with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), is organizing the Global Network Conference on Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production from 12 to 16 October 2015, in Davos, Switzerland.

The Global Network Conference on RECP will showcase 20 years of delivering RECP services to industry and identify areas of emerging interest and potential partnership amongst development actors at the national, regional and global levels within the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The conference will focus on exploring innovative approaches to RECP through exchanging best practices and sharing success stories and replicable solutions. The conference will address specific topics including low-carbon production, chemicals management, water resources, eco-industrial parks, waste management and gender mainstreaming.

Bringing together senior government officials, leading international RECP practitioners, representatives of development financial institutions, as well as cleaner production experts from research institution and academia, the conference will provide the opportunity to chart a way forward for the global promotion of resource efficient and cleaner production in the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Global Network Conference on RECP is held in conjunction with the World Resources Forum 2015.
