Commission sets out the path to resource-efficient growth

Brussels, 20 September 2011, the European Commission set out a ’roadmap’ aimed at transforming Europe’s economy into a sustainable one by 2050.


The Roadmap to a resource-efficient Europe outlines how we can achieve the resource efficient growth which is essential for our future wellbeing and prosperity.
The roadmap identifies the economic sectors that consume the most resources, and suggests tools and indicators to help guide action in Europe and internationally. It is an agenda for competitiveness and growth based on using fewer resources when we produce and consume goods and creating business and job opportunities from activities such as recycling, better product design, materials substitution and eco-engineering.
Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik said : "Green growth is the only sustainable future – for Europe and the world. Industry and environment need to work hand in hand – in the long term our interests are the same."
