Alternative approaches to consumption

ADEME contributes daily to encouraging more environmentally friendly practices. To this end, its work targets all actors in the consumption chain:
 
  • Producers of goods and services;
  • The agricultural sector;
  • Public authorities;
  • Consumers.
The objective: to consistently and simultaneously promote resource efficient production, product improvement and change in consumption patterns and lifestyles. ADEME plays an advisory role and supports initiatives aiming to achieve this objective. Through its expertise, it provides constantly updated informative data to individuals, businesses and public authorities alike. It provides points to be considered (context), data for analysis (key figures and environmental observations) and information to help take action (immediately applicable guidance to improve practices).
