Many concepts are able to initiate an increase in resource productivity in enterprises and supply chains - although some of these approaches do not directly address resource efficiency. From these instruments, we derived seven important set-screws, pointing at the most important starting points for resource productivity.
Considering the differences of the examined set-screws in general and of the approaches lying in the background in particular, the existing portfolio of instruments seems broad enough to successfully implement instruments aiming at an increase of resource efficiency in the enterprises. However, it is necessary to adapt the selection of instruments to the conditions of the specific enterprise.
The paper was presented at the Launch Conference of the Sustainable Consumption and Research Exchange (SCORE!) in Wuppertal, 23.-25.11.2006.
