Abstract
In the long term, there are no alternatives to an environmentally compatible mode of production and consumption. Global warming, the loss (depletion) of stratospheric ozone and tropical forests, marine pollution and soil erosion, world-wide air pollution and the world-wide loss of biodiversity can no longer be denied. Only if every individual adapts his or her activities to the limits of our environment, can the targets presented here be achieved. In the debate on consumption patterns in industrialized societies it is assumed that at least 30 to 40 percent of all environmental problems can be traced back directly or indirectly to current consumer behaviors and one of many tools to eliminate this problem is also benchmarking. Benchmarking is a process where companies compare their performance over time against their competition. You'll find there are areas where you are better than most. You'll also see areas where significant improvement is available.(original abstract)
