PRODUCT SERVICE SYSTEMS
IN THE NORDICS
Paving the way for Circular Business and Sustainable Consumption
WHAT ARE PRODUCT SERVICE SYSTEMS?
With Product Service Systems (PSS) the ownership of products remains with their producers or intermediaries, ensuring that products and materials remain in efficient use throughout their life cycle. In models of product service systems, the producers do not sell the product, but the service the product is intended to offer. Such business models may presuppose producers or intermediaries to hold the legal responsibility of their products, even after their end-of-life.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
With the new vision for 2030, the Nordic Council of Ministers ambitions for the Nordic region are to be the most sustainable region in the world, which necessitates a boost in circular initiatives. The shift from a linear to a circular economy has proved to be a complex and time-consuming challenge, where cooperation and common solutions between stakeholders are necessary.
Therefore, the transition to a circular and bio-based economy as well as an increase in sustainable, resource efficient and competitive production in the Nordic countries, will be put under scrutiny in the Nordic Council of Mininsters’ project on Product Service Systems (PSS).
