Zusammenfassung

The RESCUE study describes in six scenarios possible development paths towards a resource-efficient and greenhouse-gas (GHG) neutral Germany until 2050. For this, assumptions related to the level of ambition for reaching GHG-neutrality, the magnitude of materials- and energy-efficiency, and the implementation of sustainable life-styles are varied. Until 2050, GHG-emissions can be reduced by 95 percent to 97 percent compared to 1990-levels. Net zero emissions can be achieved through sustainable agriculture and forestry management. Primary raw materials consumption is reduced by 56 percent to 70 percent (however, an increased demand for certain raw materials is also observed). This summary report, provides a concise overview of the central assumptions, results, and policy-relevant conclusions from this multi-year research project.
