Language: French

Publication date: 31st July 2013

Activities in favour of sustainable consumption are carried out throughout most of ADEME (the French Environment and Energy Management Agency) central services and regional offices. However despite the cross-cutting nature and increasing importance of the thematic the agency has not defined a global strategy for sustainable consumption.
The main purpose of this evaluation was therefore to achieve a global assessment of ADEME’s activities for sustainable consumption (including an ex-post formulation of the intervention logic) in order to formulate recommendations and assist the agency in the definition of strategic guidelines
Objectives were:
• review the agency’s implemented activities in favour of sustainable consumption between 2007 and 2011;
• assess the relevance, coherence and effectiveness of implemented activities;
• make recommendations on the management and governance of ADEME’s activities for sustainable consumption and assist the agency in the definition of strategic guidelines.
