  8. 8. What we are facing…
  9. 9. Summer 1979 Summer 2003 Not just local effects…
  10. 10. SD = an enormous design challenge I = P * A * T I = Total Impact on the environment P = Population A = Affluence T = Technology-efficiency /effectiveness
  11. 11. T echnology??? P A Development concerning P, A and T
  12. 12. Pressure should decrease 6 – 40 times SD = a real challenge <ul><li>2050: Halve environmental impact </li></ul><ul><li>Quite hard: </li></ul>Population 1 1.5 - 2.5 Affluence 1 4 - 8 Technologyimpact pp 1 ??? Impact 1 1 – 0.5
  13. 13. Reaching the factor 20 in 4 steps
  14. 14. Type 4: system innovation Type 3: function innovation Type 2: redesign Type 1: product improvement 2 5 10 20 Eco - efficiency 2050 2040 2030 2020 2010
  15. 15. I - Product improvement II - Redesign III – Function Innovation IV – System innovation Type 4: system innovation Type 3: function innovation Type 2: redesign Type 1: product improvement 2 5 10 20 Eco - efficiency 2050 2040 2030 2020 2010
