In this the latest issue of The Nexus Times we are covering the critical issue of outsourcing and externalization of resources in European industry. The question is, what role does outsourcing play in the effectiveness of EU policies to reduce greenhouse gases emissions, promote renewable energies, increase recycling and reduce environmental impact of agriculture?
Due to the challeges in keeping track of externalized activities, they are difficult to measure and are often kept hidden from public view. In this edition we cover the externalization of waste, energy and water to explore the impacts of externalization from a nexus point of view - that is, from a cross-sectoral, big-picture systems perspective.
