UNEP Working Group: Research on resource efficiency

The Borderstep Institute is cooperating with the working group of the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) International Resource Panel. The IRP was established by UNEP in 2007 “to provide independent, coherent and authoritative scientific assessments of policy relevance on the sustainable use of natural resources and, in particular, their environmental impacts over the full life cycle.”

Represented by its founder Dr. Severin Beucker, the Borderstep Institute contributes to the IRP working group on resource efficiency through its research on applications and measurement results from the area of intelligent building technology and green IT. Other working group members are from North and South America, Asia, and several European countries.

Beginning in 2015, the working group’s results will be published in several IRP publications and professional journals. These results will make an important contribution, founded on international scientific expertise, to the development and evaluation of measures and policies for protecting the earth’s climate.
