Abstract

The book is the first edition in the field of sustainable consumption in Bulgaria. It contains both summarized bibliographical data and original scientific research resulting from a project implemented by a group of lecturers and researchers from the University of National and World Economy - Sofia. All stakeholders in Bulgaria have an explicitly stated need for practical assistance in creating public understanding and attitudes to the essence and importance of sustainable consumption. Education in this area directs: consumers to an informed choice of sustainable products during purchase; policy makers to the adoption of an appropriate framework for sustainable consumption and production; businesses to the development of new products with reduced environmental impact. The authors hope to respond to these needs to a considerable degree. The aim of Sustainable Consumption in Bulgaria is to provide appropriate and accessible information on the nature and principles of sustainable consumption and to describe albeit few sustainable patterns of ecologically responsible behaviour of Bulgarian consumers. The book is intended for government institutions and the businesses to support their work and to contribute to sustainable behaviour patterns. Appropriate policies, business strategies, product design and informed consumer choice are key to achieving sustainable development. It can be used by packaging waste utilization organizations, consumer organizations, non-governmental environmental organizations, educational institutions, and parents to support sustainable consumer education. The authors are delighted that a few days after the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development held in Rio de Janeiro, RIO + 20, they have the opportunity to familiarize Bulgarian readers with their many years of scientific research in this area.
