Greyson, J., 2007. An economic instrument for zero waste, economic growth
and sustainability. Journal of Cleaner Production 15: 1382-1390.

If global problems such as climate change and waste remain unresolved,
society can choose either to continue attempting to incrementally reduce
wastes and lessen impacts, or to consider a more ambitious approach that
paradoxically may be easier to implement. This paper suggests how an
approach designed to prevent waste and other global impacts could be based
upon the established practices of precycling, circular economic policy and
recycling insurance. A new economic instrument called 'precycling insurance'
is proposed, so that decision-making can be led by the market rather than by
prescriptive regulation or educational campaigns. The approach gains
relevance now that China is developing a national 'Law on the Promotion of
the Development of Circular Economy'.
