In January 2019 a new Swedish project called “Delningens potential för minskad miljöpåverkan” (in English: “The potential of sharing for reduced environmental impact”) has been finalised. The project was financed by RE:source program and led by IVL in collaboration with KTH and Lund University. Andrius Plepys was one of the collaborators in the project.
The project investigated three sharing segments in Sweden - mobility, space and goods sharing - where potential for increased resource efficiency and reduced environmental impact are expected. It estimated the scale and the nature of environmental implications and discussed how the sustainability potential could be enhanced. The project also identified several obstacles, roles of different stakeholders and provided suggestions for activities that RE: Source should continue working with. Project report (in Swedish) will soon be made available online.
