We are constantly seeking to engage and mobilize society to support conscious consumption. And, by working with governments, we are able to give scale and momentum to the transition to a sustainable society.

To this end, Instituto Akatu works with the national government and international organizations to influence decision-makers and policies for conscious consumption.

Recent examples of our work in this area include:

– Participation in the Ministry of Environment’s Action Plan for Sustainable Production and Consumption Steering Committee.

– Playing an important advisory role in shaping the communications strategy for the Ministry of Health’s Dietary Guidelines for the Brazilian Population, launched in 2014.

– Participation in the Agenda for a Sustainable Brazil, comprising a set of principles and commitments aimed at pressuring presidential and state governor candidates to pledge their support toustainable development.
