Technological developments and trends can contribute significantly to resource conservation. However, the concrete impact of these developments and trends always depends on the social context. Here, in addition to political framework conditions, social routines, patterns of action and consumption styles are important, as they have a considerable influence on individual and societal resource requirements. The present trend analysis therefore systematically examines how socio-economic and socio-cultural trends can affect the use of resources. The results of this trend analysis suggest that overarching and holistic approaches and a policy mix with tailored instruments are required to foster resource conservation.

Social routines, consumption patterns and political framework conditions all drive resource use in today's socities and require holistic policy approaches to foster resource conservation.
