Potential analysis for resource efficiency in Bavarian craft
Resource efficiency is an important contribution to environmental protection and at the same time helps to increase competitiveness. Whether and to what extent Bavarian trades have examined this topic is not yet known.
Therefore, between June and July 2019, firms from eight Bavarian trades will be surveyed on their handling of materials and raw materials on behalf of the Bavarian State Environmental Agency (LfU) and in cooperation with the Bavarian Chamber of Trades.
The survey is aimed at the bricklaying and concreting, roofing, carpenter, joiner, fitter and heating fitter, metalworker, precision tool mechanic, and baker trades. These trades are particularly interesting for the topic, as they are frequently represented in Bavaria, have many employees and also high material costs. bifa Umweltinstitut developed specific questionnaires for each of these trades, which are intended to reveal in which areas material savings are possible, why material losses occur and which measures can be helpful for the implementation of resource savings.
To make access to the questionnaire as easy as possible for the firms, not only an online tool but also a two-page questionnaire will be provided.
The results of the survey should make it possible to offer Bavarian trade firms tailored information and help with this important topic.
