Most production systems are mainly based on the linear economic model, unsustainable from an environmental point of view.

Abstract

Most production systems are mainly based on the linear economic model, unsustainable from an environmental point of view. Therefore, a transition to the circular economy is necessary as an economic model capable of paying attention to negative environmental externalities, where eco-innovation plays a crucial role in the development of concrete models. Considering the literature in the fields of Eco-innovation (EI) and Circular economy (CE), this paper seeks to clarify findings at the intersection of these two fields. The aim is threefold: a) examine literature-based working definitions of CE and Eco-innovation; b) review the role of EI and CE’s at meso, micro and macro levels; c) characterize CE-inducing EI in terms of targets, mechanisms, and impacts.
