Efficiency of Resources and Renewable Energies

When it comes to resource efficiency, there are two ways of thinking: the environmental policy standpoint and entrepreneurial standpoint. Due to global economic growth and the increase in population, growth in resource consumption has had a devastating impact on the environment in recent decades - our economic systems and business practices have not put enough emphasis on the careful use of resources. Environmental crises and scarcity of raw materials, however, have led in the recent past to a rethinking on the part of governments, businesses and consumers. Companies increasingly see resource efficiency as an opportunity, since efficient use of resources in the production process can cut costs and therefore directly increase a company's competitiveness. Therefore, there is an increasing focus on building a circular economy.

At the same time efforts are made to economise resources, there are always more intensive efforts to replace non-renewable raw materials with renewable raw materials. The use of renewable energy is just one example. The substitution of plastic produced from oil with renewable raw materials such as sugar is another. Governments and companies have recognised that future markets will lie here and are trying to bring their countries towards sustainable, competitive growth.


Como advises governments and makes them sensitive to use of resources in the strategic design of policies and instruments to move their economies to greater resource efficiency and the use of renewable energies and renewable raw materials. We also support development programmes in the strategic development and in the measurement of their performance and assist technology collaborations in initiating and monitoring programmes in the field of green technologies.
