MAN 684: Sustainable Business Models & Circular Economy

The sustainability issues that humanity is facing induce an urgent need to rethink and redesign existing business models to manage the transition to a more sustainable economy. In this context, the idea of a circular, instead of a linear economy has gained increased attention, i.e., an economy which is regenerative by design and aims to decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.
