SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production


The twelfth Sustainable Development Goal aims to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns to minimize further environmental degradation. An important component of responsible consumption and production is understanding the environmental and social impacts of products through every stage of their life cycle. Faculty and staff at PCGS are working to reduce waste within our own college and encourage our campus and community to adopt sustainable consumption patterns in the areas of energy, tourism, and more.
