Environmental sustainability and the circular economy are regularly spoken of as paradigms that can help address grand societal challenges such as the depletion of natural resources, climate change, emissions abatement, environmental degradation, biodiversity loss, and biophysical resource-growth coupling. However, the transition to a sustainable and circular economy requires collaborative business models that leverage ecosystems able to support sustainability and circularity, and a range of scientific, technological, and digital enablers to open new sources of value and accelerate a business-society-environment paradigm shift.
With this call for papers, we invite scholars to rigorously examine what are effective strategies for sustainable and circular ecosystems, and how we can meaningfully measure ecosystem impacts. We welcome both empirical and theoretical work, including:
Theorizing the concept(s) of sustainable and circular economy ecosystems in management scholarshipTheorizing effective strategies and policies for sustainable and circular ecosystemsSustainability dynamics in sustainable and circular ecosystemsDisruptive competition and externalities for sustainable and circular ecosystemsGovernance of sustainable and circular ecosystemsLong-term strategizing for sustainability and circular economy
