Decoupling

The Decoupling Working Group seeks to contribute to a better understanding of how and to what extent economic growth and human wellbeing can be decoupled from resource consumption and environmental impacts at the economic and sector level.  Its reports provide the rationale, technological opportunities as well as policy options to realize and accelerate decoupling.
