Hoffmann Centre for Sustainable Resource Economy

The Hoffmann Centre, Based at Chatham House, with the generous support of the MAVA Foundation, aims to build a sustainable resource economy, in which the world’s citizens and environment thrive together, now and in the future. It focuses on three interlocking opportunities:

1. Shifting demand
Questions of availability and cost have been central to resource policy thinking and practice. Today, new technologies and big data make it possible to harness opportunities to reconfigure future economic activities, including patterns of demand and consumption. It is imperative to make sure that these drive sustainability and inclusive growth.

2. New industrial revolution
Digitalization, big data, the circular economy and the rise of the ‘sharing’ economy are redefining models of production and consumption across the world. These new models must be aligned with sustainability and deep decarbonization initiatives to ensure a sustainable future.

3. Regenerative land economy
Land is central to many critical needs, ranging from food security to climate change, to our innate need to interact with nature. Whether these social and environmental needs can be met, will depend on how we navigate the land economy and resolve conflicts over which takes priority.
