Abstract : This paper aims at giving quantitative figures on the climate and energy challenge that may change the conditions in which business industry is operating. The material efficiency approach along the whole life cycle of products and services enables to show how to shift away from the unsustainable “business as usual scenario”. Indeed, climate policy often focuses on energy systems and price of carbon and technological options and may fail to foster sufficiency solutions compatible with business objectives and a more functional society. A focus on R&D needs and appropriate technological, economical and social framework to enhance the shift to sustainable “product service systems” is needed.
