The Centre for Resource Efficiency in Sweden (CERISE)
The Centre for Resource Efficiency in Sweden (CERISE) involves companies, authorities and research institutes. The Centre’s objective is to contribute to industries’ efforts to increase resource efficiency (reduction in the use of resources and increased material efficiency); improved energy efficiency; greater efficiency in the use of ecosystem services; increased competitiveness; and reduced environmental impact. Participants represent various industries such as energy, pulp and paper, manufacturing, chemicals, waste and recycling, and more. The network organises seminars and several partners of the Centre participate in research projects aiming at highlighting different issues in resource efficiency.
The steering group of CERISE consists of representatives from industry, the IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and Ministry of the Environment and Energy.
