Abstract

This editorial piece introduces the aim and content of the special issue on Supply Chain Operations for a Circular Economy. We initially provide an overview of the special issue themes and related inter-disciplinary topics. A summary of the accepted papers is presented in terms of the specific topics they address and their main contributions to the domain of supply chain operations. The discussions illustrate a breadth of theoretical perspectives and practical approaches considered by the academic community in addressing real world phenomena related to this special issue. The editorial piece concludes by identifying future research directions that seek to develop knowledge and understanding about circular economy operations, principles, praxis and theoretical advances.
