- The article considers the problem of the formation and promotion of consumption standards as an element of the transition to the concept of sustainable development on the example of comparing eco-labeling systems in Russia and Germany. It is noted that the rationalization of consumption standards is one of the goals of the transition to sustainable development, enshrined in the decisions of the United Nations. The algorithm for obtaining a quality mark was compared by the example of ABCERT AG Company, Germany, and the Russian organizations Eco-Control and St. Petersburg Ecological Union. A comparative analysis of regulatory documents of the federal level governing the activities of certifying organizations has been carried out. The following conclusions were made. The formation of consumption standards in Russia occurs spontaneously and reflects the current socio-economic situation. Domestic problems of the formation of consumption standards oriented towards sustainable development can be divided into two groups: a) objective - for example, low incomes of the population and confidence in certifying organizations; b) organizational - for example, the lack of a holistic position of the state on the issue of eco-labeling and a system of interaction with voluntary certification bodies. There are no fundamental differences (for example, in the sequence of stages) in the eco-labeling system of domestic and foreign authorized bodies. Moreover, the work of Russian voluntary certification systems is based on foreign standards and regulations.
