The Thuringian Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Nature Conservation (TMUEN) has launched a state initiative on resource conservation and efficiency. One of the first steps in this initiative is the identification of relevant resource flows in Thuringia within the framework of our study. The first step is to identify data availability (and data gaps) in order to then report all relevant resource flows (domestic extraction and imports, consumption of raw materials, exports, charges to the environment, etc.) and their allocation to sectors and industries. Based on the assessement of relevance and actors constellations, recommendations for action for state policy will be derived using stakeholder analyses.
