Article Troff document Greening the entire economy; not just a handful of new sectors
We need to change the way we produce goods and services. We need to ‘green’ our economy. But this does not consist of developing just a number of selected sectors, such as renewables, eco-innovation, corresponding to 5 or even 10 percent of our economy. It requires greening the entire economy. The question is: ‘How do we create a performing economy that creates jobs and ensures our well-being, and yet respects the limits of our planet?’

Highlight object code From efficient water use to quitting fossil fuels – survey shows different approaches to resource efficiency across Europe

2015 catalogue of material resource efficiency - TEST
This is a demo template - using Estonia as an example - to collect information for the 2015 catalogue of material resource efficiency policies. The structure and contents of this document are identical to the already distributed Word template. However, online fiches will also include country-specific graphs on material resource use and efficiency, based on Eurostat data, for the optional Question_20. In mid-March we will upload 39 separate documents for each of the EEA countries.

SOER Message (Deprecated) application/vnd.symbian.install Key message 8 — SOER synthesis
Increased resource efficiency and security can be achieved, for example, using extended life cycle approaches to reflect the full environmental impacts of products and activities. This can reduce Europe's dependence on resources globally and promote innovation. Pricing that takes full account of resource use impacts will be important for steering business and consumer behaviour towards enhanced resource efficiency. Clustering sectoral policies according to their resource needs and environmental pressures would improve coherence, address shared challenges efficiently, maximise economic and social benefits and help avoid unintended consequences.

Publication Material resources and waste — SOER 2010 thematic assessment
The European economy needs huge amounts of resources to function. Apart from consuming minerals, metals, concrete and wood, Europe burns fossil fuels and uses land to satisfy the needs of its citizens. Demand for materials is so intense that between 20 and 30 % of the resources we use are now imported. At the other end of the materials chain, the EU economy generates around six tons of waste per person every year. With the boom in international trade, EU consumption and production may potentially damage ecosystems and human health not only within but also far beyond its borders.
