factor 10 -tavoite

Tällainen selitys löytyi. Aika vähän käytetty tuo factor 10-käsite vielä. Suoraa käännöstä en löytänyt.

"[Luonnonvarojen] Käyttöön on yleistynyt kaksi tehostamiskerrointa, Factor4 ja Factor10. Factor 4-ajattelu lähtee siitä, että luonnonvarojen käyttöä voidaan tehostaa vähintään nelinkertaiseksi nykytilanteeseen verrattuna taloudellisesti kannattavalla tavalla. Factor 10-tavoite perustuu luonnonvarojen kokonaiskäytön puolittamiseen vuoteen 2040 mennessä."

Example sentence(s):
  • Factor 10 -tavoite
