Ecothon, an eco-entrepreneurs' marathon for sustainable development, is a business model competition for promising eco-entrepreneurs who have an innovative business idea related to SDG 12: Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP). Ecothon aims to support the entrepreneurs to transform an innovative SCP-related business idea into a feasible business model. Ecothon looks forward to contributing to the spread of eco-entrepreneurship and the achievement of UN SDGs by developing sustainable business models that minimize environmental impact. The event will be held virtually in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

What is SCP?

SCP, which is the abbreviation for 'Sustainable Consumption and Production', is that the use of services and products that minimize the use of natural resources and toxic materials, as well as the release of waste and contaminants during the service or productโ€™s cycle, so as not to jeopardize the needs of future generations. (UNEP, 2010) Its implementation helps to achieve overall development plans, reduce future economic environmental and social costs, strengthen economic competitiveness, and reduce poverty. Since SCP aims at โ€œdoing more and better with lessโ€, net welfare gains from economic activities can increase by reducing resource use, degradation, and pollution along the whole life cycle, while increasing quality of life.
