Abstract
“Resource efficiency has rightly become a priority in the EU. Evidence indicates that using resources more efficiently reduces material costs for companies and also opens new business opportunities (e.g. recycling industry) and improves competitiveness. While a number of low-hanging fruit opportunities exist, improving the efficiency of the European macro-economic system will also require structural change. Resource efficiency indicators are required to set quantifiable targets and measure progress toward absolute decoupling and a green economy.”
