  • News System Balance 2017, new report published by the Flanders Environment Agency

    In the new publication ‘System Balance 2017, environmental challenges for the energy, mobility and food systems in Flanders’, the Flanders Environment Agency investigates to what extent these three important societal systems are - or are not - environmentally balanced and what system changes are needed if we want to sustain our prosperity within the limits of our planet. The publication is complementary to the set of environment indicators describing the state of the environment. The focus on systems should enable to further develop the knowledge for system transition, and the policy-related monitoring thereof.

    The publication (available in English) can be downloaded from the website following this link: System Balance 2017

  • News The Use of Natural Resources - Report for Germany 2016

    The German Environment Agency (UBA) is pleased to announce the new publication “The Use of Natural Resources - Report for Germany 2016”. With this report UBA sheds light upon the current situation regarding resource use in Germany. The first UBA resources report focuses on renewable and non-renewable raw materials. The themes covered range from raw material extraction and trade to the use of raw materials in the German economic system and raw material consumption. Other resources, such as water, land or flow resources, are the focus of a separate chapter. In order to provide a comprehensive picture, the report includes an in-depth account of aspects such as dependency on direct and indirect imports, thereby also addressing implications for supply security.
