Eugene Memorandum: The Role of Cities in Advancing Sustainable Consumption

Sustainable Consumption and Research Action Initiative


Cities and their roles in the future of consumption and sustainability

“Cities in North America have an important role to play in building prosperity and well-being while promoting lifestyles compatible with the limits of natural systems. The consumption of materials and energy in high-income cities is a significant factor in driving climate change and resource depletion. Increasingly, government agencies, industry organizations, and experts in the research community are calling attention to the need both to consume less and consume differently. Cities can and should take action to make this possible.”
