The research group Sustainable Resource Use has been granted by the German Federal Environmental Agency to prepare the 2015 and 2017 versions of the report ¿Resource use in Germany¿. In this report, we will analyse historical trends of resource extraction, trade and consumption in Germany in the past two decades. We will also investigate to what extent the economy and its economic sectors achieved a de-coupling of economic growth from natural resource use. The first report ¿Resource use in Germany¿ will be launched end of 2015/beginning of 2016.
