Future and Emerging System Eco-innovations and SMEs

icon foresight repor 2012'Future and Emerging System Eco-innovations and SMEs' is the third Foresight Report from the Observatory.

This third Foresight report on Future and emerging system eco-innovations and SMEs focuses on the ways a transition to resource efficient society could occur. We consider the future radical and system eco-innovations that could foster such a change. As transition is not possible without proper policy guidance that creates the fruitful framework conditions for positive change, also policy mix that should be prioritised in fostering system eco- innovations is examined and recommendations are made. Further, transition to resource efficiency requires the active input from all the actors in the society, three future scenarios are presented in which different actor groups, namely business, governments and research have taken the lead in advancing this overall vision.
