Assessing Mineral Resources in Society: Environmental Risks and Challenges of Anthropogenic Metals Flows and Cycles - Summary
The global metals production shows tremendous impact on the world’s energy use, as primary metals production is responsible for 7 – 8 % of the total global energy use. Furthermore primary metal production causes severe ...
Environmental Risks and Challenges of Anthropogenic Metals Flows and Cycles
This report focuses on the impact of metals on the environment as well as on their life cycle energy use. Currently primary metals production is responsible for 7 8 % of the total global energy use as well as for severe ...
Green Technology Choices: The Environmental and Resource Implications of Low-Carbon Technologies - International Resource Panel Report
This report provides a comprehensive global-scale assessment of the benefits, risks, and trade-offs of energy efficiency technologies and their combined effects when deployed alongside low-carbon electricity supply ...
Resource Efficiency: Potential and Economic Implications - International Resource Panel Report
The findings of the report point out the importance of joining forces for acting now as well as the huge potential that resource efficiency can have, if it is implemented carefully and supported across different sectors ...
Policy Coherence of the Sustainable Development Goals: A Natural Resource Perspective
(United Nations Environment Programme, 2015)
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim, by 2030, to end human deprivation worldwide. They represent a coherent, collective vision of a better future for all and provide a framework by which progress towards this ...
Options for Decoupling Economic Growth from Water Use and Water Pollution: A Report of the Water Working Group of the International Resource Panel
Global trends point to a relative decoupling of water – that is, the rate of water resource use is increasing at a rate slower than that of economic growth. The Options for Decoupling Economic Growth from Water Use and ...
Resource efficiency: Potential and economic implications: Summary for Policy-Makers
The assessment demonstrates that because many areas of resource use are rela vely ine cient, the poten al for resource e ciency is tremendous. This is supported by the results of the modelling undertaken for this study, ...
Half the World to Face Severe Water Stress by 2030 unless Water Use is “Decoupled” from Economic Growth, says International Resource Panel
Demand for water set to outstrip supply by 40 per cent, highlighting urgent need to improve how humans use the precious resource
With Resource Use Expected to Double by 2050, Better Natural Resource Use Essential for a Pollution-Free Planet
International Resource Panel Report says material resource use expected to reach nearly 90 billion tonnes in 2017, and may more than double from 2015 to 2050. Without greater resource efficiency, Sustainable Development ...
