    A Circular Economy Handbook for Business and Supply Chains, will be published by Kogan Page in December. Easily digestible and comprehensive, it builds on the range of circular economy approaches. Wide-ranging real examples help business, students and policymakers understand the theory and fast-developing practice, re-shaping business models, operations and supply chains.
    Our current ‘linear’ systems – take some materials, make a product, use it and then throw it away – are not fit for purpose. The circular economy unlocks this problem, by ‘decoupling’ resources from consumption. Switched-on businesses are re-thinking product design, material choices, business models and supply chains.
    A ‘must-read’ for anyone who wants to understand and apply the circular economy today.
