Walter R. Stahel is widely recognised as one of the key thinkers of the circular economy and the founding father of the Performance economy. His latest book, The Circular Economy – A User’s Guide, sums up more than 30 years of research in that field.
This work is both a legacy and a forward-looking exploration. It delves into themes like the Performance economy, product-as-service, policy, producers liability, and explores the circular economy under two major lenses; the era of R - Reuse, Remanufacture, Repair, etc, and the era of D - Depolymerise, De-alloy, De-vulcanise, etc, or the management of stocks of atoms and molecules.
The foreword is written by Dame Ellen MacArthur and the book has been edited by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation editorial team. Published by Routledge, the book launches on 7th June and is already available with a 20% discount when applying the code SOC19 at checkout.
