This symposium aims to discuss methods, tools, and practices related to the circular economy (CE) in a broader context. It will address both challenges and opportunities in designing CE businesses. We have invited both practitioners and researchers to contribute. The symposium will also introduce various case studies of CE businesses, including furniture and home appliance subscriptions, as well as fashion rentals. In addition to presentations, there is a planned panel discussion to share insights into the CE landscape in different countries.
