The Circular Economy and Benefits for Society

Published 2017 – “The Circular Economy and Benefits for Society: Jobs and Climate, Clear Winners in an Economy based on Renewable Energy and Resource Efficiency” is a study report drafted at the request of The Club of Rome. Its central theme is how to greatly enhance resource efficiency. The proposition is that a circular economy, where products are designed for ease of recycling, reuse, disassembly and remanufacturing should replace the traditional, linear ’take, make & dispose’ model that has dominated the economy so far. This, no doubt, is a major prerequisite to stay within the Planetary Boundaries.
