The success of building sustainable consumption and production depends on creating a sufficient awareness and above all the involvement of all countries in the process of improving the environmental performance of products throughout their life cycle. Awareness and understanding of the social and economic dimension, influences building of sustainable consumption and production in the widest scale and makes it possible to encourage and motivate to socially responsible behavior. The article focuses on summarizing the basic attributes of sustainable consumption and production, as well as on the comparison of the progress of V4 countries in meeting the goal of "Responsible consumption and production" forming part of the Sustainable Development Agenda until 2030. We focus on indicators with quantitative target, where insufficient progress towards the EU target was achieved or there was a movement away from the target. The indicators are Primary energy consumption and Final energy consumption.
