A pioneer of the circular economy, Walter Stahel coined the phrase ‘cradle-to-cradle’ in the 1970s. According to him circular economy reduces waste volumes, GHG emissions and resource consumption, creates local jobs at all skill levels; and it is key to the future of mankind because it is based on preserving existing stocks and values.

Um pioneiro da economia circular, Walter Stahel inventou a expressão ‘do berço-ao-berço’ nos anos 1970. Segundo ele a economia circular reduz o volume de resíduos, as emissões de GEE e o consumo de recursos, gera emprego local em todos os níveis de competências; e é a chave para o futuro da humanidade, porque se baseia na preservação de valores e stocks existentes.
