• Achieving a sustainable society is one of the biggest challenges our world is facing. For decades new theories of sustainability have passed. At this moment the Circular Economy is one of the most promising theories, because it adds the aspect of an economy. Still, a lot of gaps can be found in the knowledge regarding the Circular Economy. This study will contribute by filling up a small part of this gap. This thesis will elaborate on the concept of the Circular Economy by developing a Performance-Service System. This system will be applicable in the construction sector. The model was tested by doing interviews and cases in the educational sector. One should note that the model could be applied in other sectors as well. This study will contribute by adding knowledge. Second, this study makes a first attempt to develop a model that could be used in practice. At last, this study must function as a base for future researches. Hopefully, enthousiast graduates or researchers will continue to study this complex, but challenging concept. ()
