WORLD Environment Day, celebrated on June 5 annually, is an occasion that reminds us of the urgent need to address environmental challenges and promote sustainable practices. One crucial aspect of sustainability is promoting sustainable production and consumption patterns, to mitigate the negative impacts human activities have on the environment and pave the way for a greener future.

Sustainable production focuses on minimising the ecological footprint throughout the entire product lifecycle. This approach aims to reduce waste generation, energy consumption, and the use of natural resources, while also promoting ethical practices along the entire value chain. It encourages the implementation of sustainable practices and efficient manufacturing processes.
