Abstract The systemic view of the bioeconomy has matured at various levels in Germany in recent years: the subsystems of the bioeconomy have formed, actors are investing in regional and intersectoral networking to enable new innovations, and the supporting systems have put bioeconomy design on the agenda. The promise of innovation to increase efficiency and improve products is concrete. Specific resource and climate gas savings can be expected in all sub-sectors of the bioeconomy if sustainable energy supply can be achieved at the same time. However, the current market has so far been insufficiently supportive of these ideas. Additionally, as a central topic of all the subsystems the prospect of conserving natural resources is programmatic: contributions to climate protection and species conservation are described as central, but are to be achieved primarily through “more from the same base”. The decision on how many of these resources are to be used for the bioeconomy must be negotiated within the society – in Germany, but also in all other regions of the world.
