Finnish to Spanish translations [Non-PRO]
Finnish term or phrase: Ekotehokkuus
This is the title of an article I´m translating into Spanish. The article is about sustainable development (kestävä kehitys) and an EU proposal to produce as much as possible with a minimum of raw material. I understand the term but haven´t come up with any good translation. A translation into English may also help. Thank you.
