Eco-Innovation and Resource Efficiency


Resource-dependent Europe must be at the forefront in finding and promoting new sources of growth, while aiming to create a more sustainable economy. Promoting and investing in eco-innovation – developing and using products, processes and other solutions that contribute to environmental protection or efficient use of resources – and resource efficiency – using and reusing resources more efficiently throughout our economy – can help to create smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in Europe, and deliver the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy.
