SF#03 Dematerialisation as a resource and energy efficiency measure

Sustainability Factsheet #03

“Dematerialization is the reduction of the total material and energy throughput of any product and service, and thus the limitation of its environmental impact.

This includes the reduction of raw materials at the production stage, of energy and material inputs at the use stage, and of waste at the disposal stage”.
