Abstract: Public services have recently experienced a ‘perfect storm’: dealing with challenges including the task demands of Covid-19, increased financial pressures derived from the pandemic and its impact on future revenue flows, and obligations to meet carbon reduction targets. In the UK they have also been impacted by Brexit.

This article presents a novel programme for PSOs that supports them in co-designing regional new service solutions that embed circular economy principles.
