Increasing resource efficiency: What role for Europe's industry?

There is therefore a need for policymakers at an EU and global level to take action to significantly increase resource efficiency.

As a result, the commission has launched a flagship initiative on a resource efficient Europe, part of its Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

The European parliament’s report on a resource efficient Europe also calls for an “ambitious agenda” in this area.

This event will look at the following issues:

•    What EU action could and should be taken to improve resource efficiency in the EU’s metal industry?
•    What industry lead measures are currently in place to improve resource efficiency?
•    How do the EU’s plans for a resource efficient Europe affect the industry?
•    Did the Rio+20 conference help to create a level playing field in the area for European business in the global economy?
