What measures can companies take to become more resource-efficient?

Rising raw material prices, environmental targets, cost savings, sustainability reporting, or securing competitiveness – there are numerous reasons and motives for resource-efficient action in companies. According to VDI 4800, resource efficiency is defined as the benefit ratio to its expenditure on natural resources. Natural resources include renewable and non-renewable raw materials, energy resources, water, air, land and soil, and ecosystem services. To increase the resource efficiency of a company, a variety of strategies are available, which are described in VDI 4800 and similar standards.

In particular, we consider the following questions:

  • How can material efficiency projects in companies be evaluated based on their GHG emissions?
  • How can a company create a product life cycle assessment for its products?
