    Abstract

    In this study we describe the need for risk management approaches that facilitate studying major economic changes and taking into account the impacts of new and emerging technologies. We took circular economy as a case study because the current change from a linear economy to a circulation economy creates positive environmental, economic and social impacts. However, circulation economy creates,in addition to opportunities, also new risks. The results show that industry already works in the field of circular economy. However, the managing of risks and opportunities are not at the conscious level, but rather exist randomly.
