Naturschutz und nukleare Sicherheit (BMU), Stresemannstraße 128-130, 10117 Berlin
“The conference will discuss recent
research findings that indicate ecological impacts elsewhere from goods imported to Germany. More specifically, we will highlight environmental impacts and suggest policy responses for Lithium (E-Mobility), Soy (Meat) and Cotton (Clothing). The focus lies on policy options that can contribute to mitigating the pressure our consumption places on biodiversity and ecosystem services worldwide.
Together with decision and policy makers and international experts, we will address questions such as:
► What are the global impacts of consumption on biodiversity and ecosystem services?
► Which shifts in consumption patterns are needed to reduce these impacts?
► And which policy approaches and measures can promote such transitions, specifically in the fields of mobility, food and clothing?”
