Circular Business Models: Overcoming Barriers, Unleashing Potentials (Executive Summary)
Sprache des Titels:
The circular economy represents a disruption of today?s linear ?take-make-waste economic? paradigm. It is not an end-of-pipe approach to tackling ?waste?. Turning the dominant linear structures into value cycles requires a rethinking by all involved actors. It starts with circular product redesign and demands a consistent realignment of all subsequent business processes of value creation, delivery, and return.
