The Best Practice Publication is the result of an intense work detecting, interviewing, analysing and writing case studies on some of Europe’s most interesting projects in design for the circular economy. Eleven case studies represent the diversity of sustainable designed products and services in Europe. They are from very different sectors like technology, urban furniture, waste management, clothing and accessories, food packaging or furniture; to show how sustainable design strategies can be applied in every sector. The result is a collation of well implemented business models based in excellent products, showing the creative process and the strategies that made them innovative and profitable. The authors have focused the attention particularly in the four countries that are participating in the project, namely Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands and Sweden, but most of the products analysed have international impact and can be found in many different countries.
