What is SCORAI?
SCORAI (Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative), founded in 2008, is an international knowledge network of researchers and practitioners committed to advancing sustainability by focusing on societal patterns of consumption. SCORAI recognizes that technological innovation alone is insufficient to achieve sustainability; social and institutional changes are required to reduce consumption of materials and energy. SCORAI’s mission is to facilitate a transition to a more sustainable society by generating and disseminating knowledge and by supporting policy and grassroots initiatives.
