Sustainable Consumption and Production, efficient resource use and cleaner production, environmental management systems; green procurement, green events, the management of toxic substances with a special emphasis on mercury and POPs, Eco-design, LCA; sustainable lifestyles, life cycle analysis, sustainable entrepreneurship (social and environmental), and social innovation.
