Abstract

The Circular Economy concept drives innovative practices and business models targeting sustainable economic growth while increasing resource efficiency. In supply chain management literature, sustainability has been framed frequently with economic performance as main goal rather than sustainability. Our research aims at bringing together supply chain research and industrial cases inspired on circular economy. Our selected industrial cases are companies performing new ways of creating value from previously wasted materials. Our results indicate that there are significant challenges in the structure and processes of today's supply chains. Yet, there are ways to overcome these, including close collaboration within the supply chain.
