Building on the success of the inaugural conference held in Manchester 2018, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Production and Consumption.

Sustainable production and consumption is a dynamic field and a lot has happened since our last gathering. I shall look forward to hearing from both the past and new delegates on how you have helped to advance the research and practice in the topics related to sustainable production and consumption. I hope that our discussions as well as a special issue of the Sustainable Production and Consumption journal devoted to the conference will also contribute to the advancement of the field.

Thank you for supporting the conference and I look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh in June 2020.
