Industrial Development Report 2011. Industrial energy efficiency for sustainable wealth creation. Capturing environmental, economic and social dividends
  • United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). January 2012
  • The Industrial Development Report 2011 (IDR) addresses the role of industrial energy efficiency in sustainable industrial development. It focuses on industrial energy-efficiency challenges in developing countries, which are emerging as key actors in global industrial development. The report looks in depth at long-term trends in industrial energy intensity and related technological and structural change; examines the environmental, economic and social benefits of industrial energy efficiency; and identifies obstacles to its promotion and uptake and ways to overcome them. Water use and pollution, water linkages to energy efficiency, etc. are intrinsically linked to manufacturing; these and other water-related challenges are also addressed by the report.
