A digital, green, consumer-powered recovery?
Thursday 2 June 2022, 09.00 – 10.30am UTC

In 2022, over two billion people will purchase goods or services online. Fuelled by the COVID-19 pandemic, the rapid growth of e-commerce has fundamentally changed our shopping habits and has raised new challenges for consumer protection and trust. At the same time, the escalating climate emergency has made consumers everywhere more aware of their environmental footprint, and more willing to choose sustainable products.

As leaders gather at Stockholm+50 to celebrate half a century of global environmental action, now is the time to empower consumers to become agents of a green, digital recovery. Our discussion will hear from global leaders about the policy agendas and stakeholder commitments needed to make this a reality.

Speakers:
• Isabelle Durant, Deputy Secretary-General, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development
• Christiane Rohleder, State Secretary, Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection, Germany
• Joyashree Roy, Coordinating Lead Author, IPCC 6th Assessment Report
• Helena Leurent (Moderator), Director General, Consumers International 
• Kelson Wong, Consumers International Next Generation Network Leader, Hong Kong Consumer Council
• Nathalie Bernasconi-Osterwalder, Executive Director, IISD Europe
• Jan Bertoft, Secretary General, The Swedish Consumers’ Association
• Paul Selva Raj, CEO, Federation of Malaysian Consumers Associations
• Rosemary Mpofu, Executive Director, Consumer Council.

Stay tuned until the end of the session to hear for the first time a set of policy actions to make the sustainable choice the easy one for online consumers. These ground-breaking recommendations were developed as part of Consumers International’s GreEnCommerce project, implemented in partnership with the International Institute for Sustainable Development.

This event will be recorded.
