Benefits of Resource Efficiency in Germany

Changing Markets: Study on the Potential and Multiple Benefits of Resource Efficiency in Germany

  • Project no.350743
  • Duration 12/2015 - 09/2016

The current utilisation of natural resources in German and Europe is not sustainable, as inter alia stated by the German government as well as by the European Commission. At the same time increased resource efficiency could lead to various environmental but also economic benefits. This brief study commissioned by Changing Markets presents developments in the field of resource efficiency policies, analyses the status quo of resource consumption with a special focus on fast moving consumer goods and describes potential effects of resource conservations.
