resource efficiency = energy efficiency + material efficiency

Energy efficiency (of building, of products) have been at the heart of many policy and research activities in the last years and much improvement has been achieved. Other issues related to material efficiency, (including supply and use of raw materials, management of residual waste, re-use, etc.) are now gaining in interest, in the same sectors. All these issues are not conflicting and they have to be addressed in an integrated way and taking a life cycle perspective, in order to achieve a resource-efficient Europe.
