Publications

We conduct research and development projects on topical issues in the form of reports, research articles, and publications. In addition to commissioned reports and research papers, we have also initiated studies and projects. We are keen on finding new research initiatives by request. Our topics include, e.g., one-planet lifestyles, sustainable resource-use, life cycle analysis, carbon footprinting, and circular economy.
