Our article “A Review and Typology of Circular Economy Business Model Patterns” (2019, together with Stefan Gold and Nancy Bocken) is part of a special feature of the Journal of Industrial Ecology on “Digging Deeper into the Circular Economy”

Lüdeke-Freund, F.; Gold, S. & Bocken, N. (2019): A Review and Typology of Circular Economy Business Model Patterns, Journal of Industrial Ecology, Vol. 23, No. 1, 36-61. DOI | ResearchGate

The article presents a comprehensive overview of 26 circular economy business model patterns identified in the literature. In addition, these patterns were summarised in a ‘morphological box’ that provides a handy and useful overview of the various design options available to circular economy business designers.

The initial open access option has expired, but you can reach out to us via ResearchGate, or  write an e-mail.

A summary for practitioners – arguing that this morphological box can be turned into a ‘magical design box’ – has been published in the UK edition of ‘The Conversation’.
