This relieves the waste disposal and saves energy and raw materials. The German paper industry wins more than a half of the demand for raw materials from waste paper. So Germany takes a leading position in Europe. People who use writing and copy paper, but also toilet paper or waste paper, save the environment. The federal office for environment and nature protection in Germany says that the piles of rubbish are getting smaller (minus about 10 million tons every year) and it saves up to 70 per cent of fresh water and 65 per cent of thermal energy because of recycling paper. Slide 30 Copyright www.hausarbeiten.de Slide 31 the environment profits effectively Waste separation and recycling are important components of an effective economic path. The Dual System in Germany verified in an annual balance that packaging recycling not only protects the resources but also contributes to saving energy and release of climate. Because of that, a total of 64,1 billion megajoules of primary energy were saved. Furthermore the output of 1,32 million tons of climate-damaging greenhouse gases could be avoided, this equals the emissions of about 25 billion navigated railroad kilometers. So each citizen could go about 300 kilometers by train.

Mankind therefore has a problem: Nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide and methane known collectively as greenhouse gases are warming the planet and wreaking havoc on the climate. In 1992, 154 nations attended a climate convention that, for the first time, addressed the problem and searched for solutions. In 1997, after tedious negotiations, the countries signed a protocol in the Japanese city of Kyoto that required all industrialised nations to lower their greenhouse emissions by 5.2% by 2012. Threshold countries were required to stabilise their emissions at a level equal to that of 1990, while developing countries were not given any regulations at all. Slide 37 Global Regulations Germanys national allocation plan Of all the countries in the European Union, only 5 were able to lay out their allocation plans by March 2004: Denmark, Germany, Finland, Ireland and Austria. 2400 companies from the energy, steel, paper and ceramics industries are receiving free emission rights encompassing 503 Mt per year, from 2005 to 2007. From 2008 until 2012, the total emissions will be reduced by an average of 495 Mt per year. Former environment minister Jrgen Trittin, originally desired an emission reduction down to 480 Mt per year, but was unable to convince economic minister Wolfgang Clement. Slide 38 The situation in Brandenburg Despite conservation efforts, a rise in energy consumption of around 33% by 2020 is expected. The main reasons are industrial growth and transportation. This creates a necessity for change in energy, emission, and climate politics. At the forefront of the goals provided by the Council for Sustainable Development, the following areas should be focused on especially: Building renovation and modernization. Transportation, mobility and urban development. Development and use of renewable energy sources.
