Radar 6/7 for the EU.


Developed by the European ceramic association, Cerame-Unie, the Emissions Reduction Model shows the emissions reductions the European ceramics indus- try could potentially achieve by 2050, as well as the support needed to reach these goals and an overview of known and breakthrough technologies.


According to Cerame-Unie, ceramics’ contribution to resource and energy efficiency can only be appreciated with a holistic approach that considers the complete lifecycle of the product, not just the carbon at the point of manufac- ture and should include durability and impact over the use phase.


The roadmap calls for a supportive reg- ulatory framework to facilitate develop- ment and investment in breakthrough technologies, to promote European com- petitiveness based on sustainable eco- nomic growth and to reduce the risk of “carbon and job leakage”. Launching


the Roadmap, Alain


Delcourt, president of Cerame-Unie, said: “We look forward to working together with policymakers and stake- holders on defining the path to a com- petitive low-carbon and resource-effi-


cient economy for Europe.


“We need to look beyond ‘business as usual’ to create a supportive regulatory environment to allow European indus- try to meet the emissions reductions tar- gets while remaining competitive.” Vice-president of Cerame-Unie, Heimo Scheuch, added: “Ceramics are designed to be durable and play an essential and often indispensable role for the energy and resource efficiency of other sectors.”


Reuse


Businesses get on board waste project


Businesses across the UK have made sig- nificant efforts to donate unwanted office resources, providing over 2,500 items of furniture and equipment to charities, schools and social enterprises through a waste resource project.


Set up in April 2011, the project enables redistribution of wasted office resources to support the most vulnerable in society


Office furniture is loaded up


and education projects in schools. Items that are not viable for resale but can still be reused are donated rather than treated as waste.


Organised by Premier Sustain, a sus- tainable workplace solution provider, the project enables organisations that need to clear redundant items of furni- ture and equipment, typically as part of business change or relocation. Since its launch, the project has assist- ed over 50 charities, schools and social enterprises, diverting over 1,200 office
