ifeu publishes results from PeerSharing project
Exchanging, lending, renting – the economy of sharing is booming. Both non-Profit organisations with high social standards and profit-seeking international companies participate in the Sharing Economy. To address the ecology of sharing and evaluate of the environmental impacts of peer-to-peer Sharing ifeu has recently published a report under the German title “Ökologie des Teilens – Bilanzierung der Umweltwirkungen des Peer-to-Peer-Sharing” as part of the “PeerSharing” project. This project is part of the funding programme “Sustainable Economy” of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and investigates the sustainability of the use of internet platforms that mediate peer-to-peer sharing. The report presents the results of the PeerSharing project with respect to the participating platforms Kleiderkreisel, Drivy, Flinc und Wimdu, and discusses the conclusions to be drawn from them.
