Books on Circular Economy


The Blue Economy Version 2.0: 200 Projects Implemented, US$ 4 Billion Invested, 3 Million Jobs Created

Author: Gunter Pauli | Publisher: Academic Foundation | Year: 2015

For those unfamiliar with Gunter Pauli: this book is the seminal text of scientific environmentalism, translated into more than 30 languages. Pauli is an economist devoted to the issues of environmental sustainability. He is the forerunner of those new figures counted among the Green Jobs: environmental economists, nowadays figures required by companies to calculate environmental risks and criticalities from an economic and financial point of view.

In the book, Pauli tackles the complex theme of the economic-environmental-social crisis of recent years, indicating a series of possible solutions capable of generating new employment, environmental quality and system culture. A series of examples and innovative ideas for developing a competitive, low-carbon and resource-efficient economy. The economist himself will cite and support biomimicry and the zero waste concept in the course of writing the text.
This is an essential text for understanding the steps and precursor moments to the circular economy.
