The North American Actor and Activity Map on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP), a project funded by Industry Canada, is a report that examines the concept of sustainable consumption and production, and explores the ‘communities of practice’ in North America that are acting on specific leverage points within and across the SCP system. It builds on prior efforts, and contributes to filling a recognized gap in identifying who is doing what, where and why, in Canada and the United States as well as across both countries. Each circle in the graphic, below, represents the many people working in the variety of communities of practice along the path of the consumption and production system.
