Resource Efficiency can be realised independently from the size of an enterprise. The realisation of this objective is an important factor for further growing. We define ourselves as a research and consulting organisation with the mission to implement resource efficiency in industry and the general public. In the relationship consumer, industry and policy each participant is responsible for our global resources – a comprehensive solution considers the diverse interconnections between each player.
In order to achieve our goals we develop interdisciplinary business competence, national and international contacts and broad expertise in the described fields. As a research and consulting organisation we steadily develop solutions and concepts and demonstrate in which way the concept of sustainable development can be realised through specific projects. During the implementation and realisation phase we are assisting our customers from problem formulation until final realisation.
Resource efficiency can be regarded as a key element of corporate social responsibility. In order to make the right decisions it is necessary to judge problems from a comprehensive point of view. As a research and consulting organisation we see our position as a connecting link in order to give our partners and customers all relevant information, which allows them to simplify their decision making process.
A special situation is now evident for the electronics, automotive, construction and renewable energy industries in Europe, because their environmental footprints have got into the focus of political and consumer considerations. Important topics within this thematic field are minimising of resource consumption, waste as well as the environmental risk potential as a whole.
At the moment our most intensive task and challenge aims to increase the resource efficiency in industry, mainly in the electronics, automotive, construction and renewable energy sector.
We solve this task through interdisciplinary research, development of innovative solutions and by guiding our partners and customers from a project idea until the final realisation and modifications in the future.
