The German Industry spends 45 per cent of expenditures on material costs, but less than 20 per cent on labour costs. German companies pay about 500 billion Euro for metals, plastics and raw materials each year. The modernisation of production assets could save up to 100 billion Euro, concludes a new study performed by Arthur D. Little in cooperation with the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy and Fraunhofer Institute.
