Resources Commission established at Federal Environment Agency
Team of experts to advise on resource conservation policy in Germany and the European Union
The establishment of a "Resources Commission at the Federal Environment Agency" (KRU) is aimed at the support of resource conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources. Members of the Commission elected Prof. Dr. Christa Liedtke of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy as Chairwoman of the KRU. "The conservation of natural resources is a pressing task. Their consumption today already outstrips Earth's regenerative capacity. Worldwide population and economic growth are exerting increasing pressure, which is why more economic and efficient use of natural resources will become a key competence of progressive societies", explains President Jochen Flasbarth of the Federal Environment Agency (UBA).
