In the long term, existing economic activities and consumption patterns will inevitably surpass planetary boundaries. The concept of absolute decoupling offers the potential to reduce the resource inputs and environmental impacts associated with economic growth. Dr. Martin Hirschnitz-Garbers discussed whether absolute decoupling will be one solution and which challenges would be faced in the implementation of this concept with the participants of the FFU Berlin Sustainability Talk. The presentation slides are available for download.
