In a great interview a Sustainability specialist for Accenture mentioned that this company believes that the circular economy is a 6 trillion Dollar opportunity by 2030.
Inspiring : that’s the adjective that comes to mind as I have just finished reading Cradle to Cradle, by William McDonough and Michael Braungart. I had heard about that book for quite some time and I understand now why.
The book was written in 2002 –with a 2008 reedition – and is replete with enlightening examples of how we can re-imagine the way we design and produce our products, cities and way of life.
I believe Cradle to Cradle is just THE book that should be read by engineers and people working in related fields (including architects and designers)
