The National Centre for Sustainable Production and Consumption (NCSPC)
The National Centre for Sustainable Production and Consumption (NCSPC) is a not for profit organization, established in March 2010, as a spin of the ‘Programme for Sustainable Development of Enterprises in Romania’, funded by the Government of Switzerland and implemented with the support of United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). Amongst other 72 organizations, NCSPC is a member of the RECP Network – the global network for promoting the widespread adaptation and adoption of Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP). NCSPC is one of very few organizations in Romania aiming to promote Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP). The main objectives are to create awareness, build capacity, provide information and technical support to companies for increasing eco-efficiency, to sustain strategies and programs that promote and enable resource efficiency, circular economy and sustainable production and consumption.
NCSPC uses synergies with its founder members, consultancies and sustainability experts, and benefits from the experiences gained during projects performed in cooperation with academia, industries and public institutions, having proofed records in sustainability related topics such as: resource efficiency and cleaner production, eco-innovation and circular economy. As certified VET organisation, NCSPC offers educational programs and professional training in environmental management, waste management, RECP, eco-innovation and circular economy.
