    • What is SCP finally? MTS RE/SCP GE
    • OK tell us what is SCP!• The creation and use of services and related products, which respond to basic needs and bring a better quality of life while minimising the use of natural resources and toxic materials as well as the emissions of waste and pollutants over the life cycle of the service or product so as not to jeopardise the needs of future generation MTS RE/SCP GE
    • Life-cycle approach MTS RE/SCP GE
    • Resource EfficiencyMedium Term Strategy SCP Activities Green Economy Tools
    • Green Economy• A Green Economy is one that results in increased human well-being & social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks & ecological scarcities.• A Green Economy is one whose growth of income and jobs is driven by investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance efficiency and sustain biodiversity and ecosystem services. MTS RE/SCP Activities GE
    • UNEP’s Green Economy Report• Investing or reallocating just 2% of global GDP in 10 key sectors can kick-start a transition to a low-carbon, resource-efficient economy. MTS RE/SCP Activities GE
