Abstract

This paper reports the results of research undertaken by Cranfield University to assess the concept known as Sustainable Product Service Systems (SPSS) and particularly, the extent to which these might assist in the development of sustainable patterns of production and consumption in the UK.

It highlights the notion that if SPSS is to offer utility within this context it must be transferred from academic and policy making circles and applied within UK manufacturing companies. More specifically therefore, this paper focuses upon research which sought to identify the extent to which this important concept can be transferred to and applied within UK manufacturing companies and as a corollary, the extent to which PSS is a viable business option in certain parts of the UK manufacturing sector.
