Assessment of climate protection measures for industry and the trade, commerce, and services sector in Germany

Knowledge and evaluation

Climate protection policies for the industry as well as for the trade, commerce, and services sectors are often conceptualized, implemented and scientifically assessed with regard to the companies or energy users only. However, a range of other stakeholders exists, which play an important role when it comes to the enabling of greenhouse gases mitigation in companies. Therefore, the BMUB commissioned the study at hand by the Institute for Resource Efficiency and Energy Strategies, which develops and uses a new stakeholder-specific approach to assess those policy measures. The analysis tries to find out if the different roles of important stakeholders and specific barriers are properly addressed.
