The European Roundtable on Sustainable Consumption and Production (ERSCP) Society is a research and action oriented society that provides a platform for the stimulation, development and dissemination of new initiatives aimed at fostering the implementation of concepts and approaches for (i) sustainable consumption and production, (ii) sustainable products and services, (iii) local and regional sustainability-related initiatives and (iv) urban sustainability-oriented initiatives. It began as a network around a series of conferences under the name European Roundtable on Cleaner Production (ERSCP). The first Roundtable was organised in Graz, Austria in 1994.
