Decoupling 2: Technologies, Opportunities and Policy Options

Many decoupling technologies and techniques that deliver resource productivity increases as high as 5 to 10-fold are already available.

This report shows that much of the policy design "know-how" needed to achieve decoupling is present in terms...Read more
