Full name of Instrument & Measure (English): 
COM(2011) 571: Communication of 20 September 2011: Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe
The flagship initiative for a resource-efficient Europe provides a long-term framework for actions in many policy areas, supporting policy agendas for climate change, energy, transport, industry, raw materials, agriculture, fisheries, biodiversity and regional development. This is to increase certainty for investment and innovation and to ensure that all relevant policies factor in resource efficiency in a balanced manner. Resource efficiency allows the economy to create more with less, delivering greater value with less input, using resources in a sustainable way and minimising their impact on the environment.
Stimulate sustainable and efficient use of resources.
