Stakeholder Engagement in a Sustainable Circular Economy: Theoretical and Practical Perspectives



A circular economy is considered one of the most pertinent solutions to contemporary socioeconomic and environmental sustainability challenges, such as climate change, biodiversity loss and resource depletion. The transition from a linear to a circular economy requires the support and participation of various organisations and institutions as well as stakeholders at all levels of society. This edited volume examines the role and importance of stakeholder engagement in a sustainable circular economy from multiple theoretical and practical perspectives. We understand a sustainable circular economy as a pathway to a more environmentally friendly and socially inclusive society and stakeholder engagement as an important tool to catalyse this journey. This volume provides an in-depth, research-based overview of how stakeholder engagement can catalyse the transition towards a sustainable circular economy and foster and support sustainable change. It provides an up-to-date discussion of theoretical and practical advances that is intended for researchers, policymakers and practical advances that is intended for researchers, policymakers and practitioners.
