Circular Supply Chain Management

About this Research Topic

Circular supply chain management (CSCM) is the integration of circular thinking into the management of the supply chain and its surrounding industrial and natural ecosystems.

The advantage of CSCM is that it enhances the regenerative dimension of sustainable supply chain management and green supply chain management. On one hand it progresses the idea of sustainability with the promotion of circular thinking in supply chain while on the other hand it advocates managers towards achieving breakthrough performance in resource efficiency, keeping sustainability in perspective.

It systematically restores technical materials and regenerates biological materials toward a zero-waste vision through system-wide innovation in business models

Circular Economy is increasingly getting recognition over linear economic model. It is considered as a major driving force behind sustainability. Integration of circular economy philosophy in supply chain management has been dealt by several authors. With this special issue, we intend to explore various issues related to CSC such as integration of circular economy (CE) into individual supply chain functions, CE and product or service design, CE in procurement, CE and production, CE and logistics, CE and end of life/waste management etc.

This Research Topic will assimilate novel research in the domain of circular supply chains. Outstanding contributions that report new operations management tools, real world case studies, empirical studies assessing operations and other studies having managerial implications are welcomed.

Manuscripts should focus on the following, but not limited to, topics:

• Design for circularity
• Procurement issues in CSCM
• Environment friendly
• Packaging for CSCM
• Enabling technologies for implanting concept of CSM
• Legal implications of adopting CSCM
• Promotion of circular consumption in supply chains
• Drivers and synergies in CSCM
• Barriers and inhibitors of CSCM
• Supporting business models for CSCM


Keywords: Sustainability, Circular economy, Supply chain management, Environment, Circularity


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
