Abstract

Though the ICT sector strongly supports the circular economy, it is an economic and social system in which there is no waste, which is regenerative and restorative by design. Yet, the terminology and the policy emphasis on circularity are relatively new. Technology businesses are agile, fast-developing, and quick to exploit the market opportunities presented by disruptive digital technologies. A movement away from product-based business models to service delivery over the last decade is a typical example of this trend. In such areas, a business opportunity is closely aligned with the move to greater sustainability, and it would be surprising, in such a dynamic industry, if these new models are welcomed and adopted. Hence, adopting a systematic literature review method, the aim of this paper is to provide an ICT sector perspective for the circular economy in this digital era.
