The G7 Alliance on Resource Efficiency was set up at this year's summit of the G7 Heads of State in Germany. The Alliance aims to share knowledge and best practices in the conservation and efficient use of natural resources. At the summit it was recognised that sustainably produced renewable resources can substitute fossil resources, and thus make important contributions to climate protection goals.

The G7 Alliance Conference on "Innovative Biobased Products: Opportunities for Substituting Non-Renewable Resources" is hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture. ISCC will also give a presentation at this conference.
