IIIEE researchers Jessika Luth Richter and Carl Dalhammar have authored a new book on planned obsolescence (PO), together with staff at the Fores think tank.

The book, Planned Obsolescence – Built not to last, is published by the European Liberal Forum and explains what PO is and provides examples of PO. It furthemore outlines the links between Circular Economy and Climate challenge, and discusses policy solutions.

The book aims to inform policymakers and other interested parties about the main issues in relation to PO.

The book will be launched at an event in Stockholm on 21 November. Among the speakers at the event are Carl Dalhammar and Loïc Picard at Groupe Michelin, who have been striving to change current tire labelling towards labelling based on lifetime.
