Towards the Sustainable Use of Material Resources

Paper originally delivered at the BSSA Conference 'Stainless Solutions for a Sustainable Future' held in Rotherham on 3rd April 2003. This paper focuses on a project undertaken by the Natural Step in 2002, which considered the way materials are used, rather than the material type. The paper firstly explores the use of the Natural Step Framework for Sustainability before using the Framework in relation to the sustainable use of materials.
