Radical Resource Productivity

Obtaining the same or increased amount of utility or work from a product or process while using fewer resources, including energy, man-made materials, and natural resources such as air, water, or minerals. The Industrial Revolution sparked a radical increase in human productivity, which relied on a seemingly unlimited supply of natural resources. Similarly, a radical increase in resource productivity can save money, slow or reverse resource depletion, and reduce pollution caused by the inefficient use of resources.
