Chapter 3: The circular economy and green supply chain management

Junjun Liu, Qinghua Zhu and Yunting Feng


The circular economy requires green supply chain activities in order to function. The circular economy includes a broader set of practices and policies at multiple levels. Most of the work on the circular economy has occurred at a macroeconomic level,but practices at the organizational and supply chain level are important in the operationalization of the circular economy. This chapter aims to explore the intersection of the circular economy and green supply chain management. Thus, circular economy studies at the enterprise level are reviewed, and their relationship to green supply chain management. Synergies and limitations are discussed as well as future directions for study, integration and application.
