Resource Efficiency

Natural resources are essential production factors and thus one of the pillars of our prosperity. At the same time, however, the use of raw materials negatively impacts the environment, ranging from emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants into the air, water and soil to the impairment of ecosystems and biodiversity. This means that sustainable societies must have the capability to use natural resources responsibly and efficiently.
