Every region has resources – whether they are bio-based natural resources or human capital. These resources need to be used lucratively and sustainably. This is the way regions can prepare themselves for future changes on an international scale.

The resources can be used to refine tangible products or to create utility services such as power.  It is important to know the wisest way to use these resources and what are their potentials.

Some resources, however, are best used when they are left in nature. These resources can, for instance, be used for well-being or tourism purposes. Valuating the qualitative features of resources is therefore a significant part of Resource Wisdom.

One can say that the most important resource that a region has is its people. We agree with that. Resource Wisdom is also about bringing in the brightest minds and making them work together for a greater goal.

It is important to realize the hidden potentials that different resource fractions have – not to mention energy efficiency in production and refinement. This is Resource Wisdom: to use every bit of resources to maximize the potentials in resources.

Creation does not only involve generating tangible products. Resource Wisdom is also about designing services and environments for citizens. When the services have been designed well, they do not only create new business opportunities but they also promote social and environmental well-being.

Regions run with the consumption of products and services. However, decision makers can ask themselves if this consumption is the most beneficial for their region and environment. In other words, is the money used for consumption staying within the region and enabling its sustainable development?

Moreover, efficiency increases cannot only be found at the production phase of product lifecycles but also at the consumption part. Resource Wisdom is to let go of the concept of waste and turn it into a concept of new resources that can be utilized again at the beginning of the value chain. This does not only make sense from an environmental point – it also makes sense economically.
