Sammanfattning

The use of natural resources has significant impacts on European economy as well as quality of life of its citizens while also having long-term effects on the global scale. The uptake of innovations and technologies put increasing pressure on the use of resources. This policy brief addresses the main objectives of the 2020 strategy by putting an emphasis on the Resource-efficient Europe Flagship initiative implemented in Greece. Its focus is to help decouple economic growth from the use of resources, support the shift towards a low carbon economy, increase the use of renewable energy sources, modernize our transport sector and promote energy efficiency. Concerning Greece, special attention should be paid to to that there is much more that needs to be done to reach sustainability targets despite the achievements already accomplished. Measures to improve energy efficiency in the industrial, transport, residential and public sector should also continue.
