    English AbstractThis report of the MATRIC project investigated 'Eco-efficiency in industrial production'. After a general introduction into the domain of eco-efficiency, the first part of this report further focusses on the organisation of Product-Oriented Environmental Management (POEM), which is defined as the systematic attention of a company for reducing the environmental impact of its products across the entire product lifecycle. The second part of this report focusses on the adoption of eco-efficient construction systems in Dutch house building. After a general description of socio-technical development in Dutch housing construction, the housing construction regime is described, special attention is given to the adoption paths of timber-frame and calcium silicate stone construction systems, and, finally lessons for the governance of socio-technical development in Dutch housing construction are drawn.
