This review is from: Factor Five: Transforming the Global Economy through 80% Improvements in Resource Productivity (Hardcover)
Recycling garbage, turning off lights, taking shorter showers: All these actions contribute to the reduction of energy consumption. Written as a joint project by Ernst von Weizsäcker, the author of Factor Four, and by four experts from The Natural Edge Project, an environmental research group, this call to action argues for a "whole-system approach" that unites engineers, designers, scientists and builders to create new products, processes, buildings, homes, factories and stores to reduce energy consumption by 80%, diminishing it to one-fifth of current usage, by 2050. A mountain of research, statistics, case studies and examples provide a strong, documented case that achieving "sustainable consumption" without forgoing prosperity not only is possible but necessary. getAbstract recommends this work to policy makers, executives, engineers, designers and all those who want to know why they should keep separating their plastic from their glass.

Compelling examples of how to reduce resource requirements and increase profitability. For all those who enjoyed factor 4 this will is a must read. Policy makers will understand why a transition to sustainable business models is not only possible but also profitable. Thanks to Ernst von Weizsacker and to the young team at the Natural Edge Project for this provocative call to action.
