Article
The production and consumption of smartphones have been associated with a wide range of sustainability issues throughout the life cycle. While the dominant industry practices and resulting social and ecological problems have been discussed in depth in the extant literature, it has not been investigated so far how sustainability pioneers alleviate u...

Adopting the concept of a circular economy at a product level requires firms to rethink their business model and collaborate with partners across their value chain. Reaching product circularity through closing, slowing, and narrowing resource loops can be understood as a systems innovation, which calls for transdisciplinary research approaches. Thi...
Article
Full-text available
Slowing and closing product and related material loops in a circular economy (CE) requires circular service operations such as take-back, repair, and recycling. However, it remains open whether these are coordinated by OEMs, retailers, or third-party loop operators (e.g., refurbishers). Literature rooted in the classic make-or-buy concept proposes...
Thesis
Full-text available
The circular economy (CE) can be understood as a system-level innovation with implications beyond an individual firms value chain. Therefore, a CE transition leads to a dynamic situation concerning actor constellations and rearrangement in the value chain and beyond. This dissertation focuses on complementary circular service operations (CSO), such...
Technical Report
Full-text available
As a conceptual extension of the established life cycle approach, the objectives of the CE are aimed at keeping products, components and materials in cycles of usage that are stable, closed and as permanent as possible. In this way their quality is maintained or even improved. Therefore, the CE does not represent a “recycling economy” in the narrow...

Innovation through modular product design is a promising strategy for product lifetime extension and material recyclability. Yet, sustainability benefits of the design do not automatically come into effect, but require additional process innovation through service activities that have to be attractive and made use of by users. This study investigat...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Pioneering smartphone companies have embarked on ambitious journeys to adopt modular product designs (MPD) as part of their circular economy strategy. MPD refers to the idea of designing products based on grouping related functions in individual modules with standardized interfaces. Previously, MPD has been extensively discussed as an approach to a...

Verbunden mit einem nachhaltigen Konsum mobiler Endgeräte sind Herausforderungen wie ein verändertes Produktdesign ohne Verwendung von Konflikt-Rohstoffen, die Verlängerung der Endgeräte-Nutzungsdauer oder die Verwertung von Altgeräten Nachhaltigkeitsstrategien, die auch als Circular Economy thematisiert werden. Hierfür wettbewerbsfähige Lösungen z...

Smartphones make intensive use of precious metals and so called conflict minerals in order to reach their high performance in a compact size. In recent times, sustainability challenges related to production, use and disposal of smartphones are increasingly a topic of public debate. Thus, established industry actors and newly emerging firms are driv...

Project
The Innovation Network aiming at Sustainable Smartphones (INaS) is a living lab bringing together various actors from the smartphones value chain (suppliers, producers, telephone operators, repair and recycling services) to exchange best practices and develop new business models for a circular smartphone use by consumers and business-to-business customers. The project is successfully running since February 2015 and continues with a second round of founding from 2019-2022 focusing on modular product designs.
