Sustainable, decarbonized, circular.
These are core traits of the green economy, a future-proof and sustainable economic system. It unites ecological solutions with economic opportunities, while protecting natural resources and the environment.
Yet the transformation process towards a green economy does not only produce winners. Hence, opportunities must be highlighted, incentives created, achievements perpetuated and old habits overcome – while making sure everyone is involved.
Cross-sectional environmental economy
The environmental economy is a key element of the green economy. It unites technical solutions and services with environmental benefits. It includes businesses from many fields: from wastewater treatment and waste management to environmentally friendly mobility, raw material efficiency, renewable energies and innovative forms of agriculture.
Resource efficiency and the circular economy
The linear economic model is not sustainable and destroys the foundation on which it is built. The remedy: a transformation towards a circular economy in which the value and finite nature of resources are recognized. This path towards a sustainable economy is a challenge to everyone: Scientists, product designers, industry and waste management, and last but not least, consumers. Our task is to show the potential of this development and to make both its opportunities and challenges tangible and comprehensible.
