Measuring Sustainable Production

Measuring Sustainable Production

Most people support sustainable development without knowing what it is. What exactly are sustainable consumption and sustainable production, and how are these practices identified?  This volume reviews the state-of-the-art in measuring sustainable production processes in industry. It includes metrics developed by business, trade unions, academics, NGOs, and the OECD and IEA. These measurement approaches cover the "triple bottom line" (economic, environmental and social dimensions) of industrial sustainability.

Hide / Show Abstract

The fact that this workshop on sustainable production has attracted participants from nineteen different countries and three continents underlines the importance of the workshop topic. It is no coincidence that the workshop is hosted here at the Danish Enterprise and Construction Authority (DECA), which is a central part of the Danish Ministry of Economics and Business Affairs. We are in charge of both administering and developing a modern industrial policy for Denmark.
