German Resource Efficiency Programme (ProgRess) - programme for the sustainable use of natural resources

"The current use of natural resources is already far exceeding the Earth’s regenerative capacity. A responsible and efficient use of natural resources will therefore be a key competence for any society seeking to ensure its future viability. Improving resource efficiency can limit environmental damage, strengthen the competitiveness of the German economy, create new jobs and secure long-term employment. Therefore, on 29 February 2012, the Federal Cabinet adopted the German Resource Efficiency Programme (ProgRess). With this, the German government implemented the decision in its Raw Materials Strategy of 20 October 2010 to develop a national resource efficiency programme. This paper provides an overview of the key elements of ProgRess." (p. 6)
