Abstract Circular economy system come from resource regeneration, and must optimize resource and environmental sustainability within the closed-loop system in the supply chains. Prior circular economy studies are neglecting the multi-loop supply chain system activities that broaden the economic benefits and rarely link the activities to economic benefits, especially mostly dealt with optimization of resource use by minimizing waste, emissions, energy leakage, and resource input. This study points out to monitor on the multi-level supply chain system effects on circular economy diffusion effects using life cycle assessment tool. A challenge now to the circular economy community is to involve the attributes in multi-level supply chain system and its activities.

Abstract A sustainable product-service system has environmental, social and economic benefits. However, prior studies of sustainable product-service systems neglected to address the interrelationships among various aspects and criteria and did not present improvement criteria. In addition, a sustainable product-service system has an interdependent and interrelated hierarchical structure and includes measures of qualitative information. The Ecuadorian construction industry faces challenges in dec...

Abstract Due to increasing pressure for achieving sustainability objectives, the concept of sustainable product design and development is gaining more attention in recent research. In the past, a plethora of eco-design tools that address only the environmental aspect have been developed. Hence, previous review articles focused mainly on eco-design tools, such as life cycle assessment (LCA) and others. Unlike previous studies, the main contribution of this article was to review and analyze the re...

Abstract The circular economy concept has gained momentum both among scholars and practitioners. However, critics claim that it means many different things to different people. This paper provides further evidence for these critics. The aim of this paper is to create transparency regarding the current understandings of the circular economy concept. For this purpose, we have gathered 114 circular economy definitions which were coded on 17 dimensions. Our findings indicate that the circular econom...
