Successful development in Germany

Goal of the federal government is to double the (abiotic) raw material
productivity (RMP) (National Strategy for Sustainable Development)


Value added (GDP)

Extracted + imported, used, abiotic raw material

= Direct Materialinput (DMI)

Public Governance for more RE

Existing technological and organisational solutions for more resource

efficiency are not sufficiently implemented (recycling, substitution, savings).

Different policy elements can accelerate the development:

Regulation

Market
-
Based Instruments


Voluntary
Instruments

Information

-

standards

-

prohibitions

-

subsidies

-

taxes/

fees

-

cap

and

trade

“Voluntary” instruments, such

: VDI
Guidelines

(
activity

of

VDI e.V.)




VDI Guidelines play a very important role as pioneers for
international standardization:


Accessible for all market participants, they allow savings

by reducing information and control costs as well as costs

for adjustment and trading.


Technical knowledge can spread faster. Standards




thereby facilitate contractual arrangements, commercial


transactions, and serve to reduce technical trade barriers


VDI Guidelines thus help to relieve government from the


duty to implement additional layers of regulations.

Today 1.800 valid VDI Guidelines extensively covering

the broad field of technology. Topics range from securing

loads on road vehicles to testing of optical
fibres

up to

biomimetics

and monitoring of the consequences of

genetically modified organisms.
