Resource efficiency - what can NGOs and non-profit organizations do?

In the framework of the PRESOURCE project, at an expert workshop, we delivered a presentation on what NGOs and not-for-profit organizations can do for improving resource efficiency.

The options available to not-for-profit organizations can be basically placed into 4 main categories:

  1. Improving the resource efficiency of their own operations - including offices and research projects
  2. Promoting resource efficiency 
  3. Generating discussion and lobbying
  4. Establishing social entreprises that focus on resource efficiency

To conclude the presentation, Edina Vadovics drew attention to two important issues: 

  1. Resource efficiency needs to be re-considered with a view to observing resource limits and establishing resouce caps.
  2. Issues related to equity and justice in access to resources need to be introduced into the resource efficiency discussion and debate.
