Resource management and efficiency

Working towards a resource-efficient economy represents a major challenge both in Switzerland and abroad. Innovative approaches are required when it comes to the supply, usage and disposal of resources.

We advise authorities, associations and companies with regard to issues pertaining to resource management and resource efficiency. We combine interdisciplinary knowledge with strategic and conceptual skills, and develop bases for sustainable resource policies and management. In the process, we place great emphasis on embedding technological possibilities in the relevant political and socioeconomic structures.

The following services are central to our work in this area:

  • National, regional and operational resource strategies
  • Analysis of resource efficiency potential and development of improvement strategies for individual sectors and entire economies
  • Analysis of the impact of regulatory framework conditions and the exploitation of potential and development of appropriate adaptation proposals
  • Approaches for boosting resource efficiency in industry as a member of the Swiss resource efficiency network, Reffnet.
