Circular Economy Center: Creating a General Concept for Circular Economy Constitutions


In the thesis, a general concept for circular economy constitutions is created. The results of this study consist of the circular economy center definition, the categorization framework for centers and 20 practical circular economy center case descriptions and analyses. The circular economy center definition theorizes the phenomenon, the categorization framework explicitly shows relevant dimensions and indicators for them and the cases provide practical examples of how the circular economy center can manifest in practice. The concept thus captures the common essence of the constitutions and provides especially insights on the organization aspects of collaborative multi-actor systems in circular economy.
