Study on modelling of the economic and environmental impacts of raw material consumption
Final report - Study
The objective of this study is to assess the economic, social and environmental impacts of alternative policy packages to improve European resource productivity, as measured by GDP per unit of Raw Material Consumption (RMC). The analysis is quantitative in nature and a modelling approach is applied so that indirect effects (including interlinkages between different resource types) are taken into account.
