... Very recently, Castro et al. 7 focussed on the rebound effects that limit the expected outcome of the potential benefits from closing the material cycling loops in circular economy towards ecological benefits. In this context, Business Process for Sustainable Circular Economy Framework has been proposed by Sanches et al. 8 However, nomenclature of such concept greatly varied during the course with different names viz. circular economy, bio-economy, green economy, among many others. ...
... 5 A new shift in the paradigm from linear to circular approach in resource use namely CE has already gained worldwide attraction in recent years 6 and considerable refinements have been made to its definition and concept.

... On a brighter note, Rodr ıguez-Esp ındola et al. (2022) find that young consumers especially support CE, demonstrating an upcoming global shift for CE adoption. Supporting this, Liu et al. (2022) mention that stakeholders' expectation and collaboration is the ultimate driver for sustainable supply chain operations that integrate CE with Industry 4.0. Further, we found the role of environmentally conscious leadership or top management in the successful implementation of CE (Khan et al., 2020;Rizos et al., 2016;Sohal and de Vass, 2022). ...
... Indeed, a close knowledge-related collaboration within the organization and with all the stakeholders can ease the emergence of sustainability-oriented practices like CE (Zucchella and Previtali, 2019;Govindan and Hasanagic, 2018;Zhang et al., 2021;Gomes et al., 2021;Vendrell-Herrero, 2021). In addition to what is done and known so far, there is a ferment around what can be a further catalyst of CE (Seles et al., 2022;Ciliberto et al., 2021). An optimization of knowledge management with company strategies and environmental practices will, thus, be fundamental for the implementation of research and development activities of circularity value creation models (Prieto-Sandoval et al., 2018). ...
... Rodrigues et al. (2020) found out that the size of technology waste also matters, since small-sized devices are easily stored at home, and therefore, may be recycled less frequently. Guzzo et al. (2022) also highlighted the effect of convenience: consumers tend to participate more on e-waste collection when they can reach the collection system easily. ...

... The Strategic Plan of the city and the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) represent the main forms of government of the Metropolitan City of Cagliari in the aftermath of the health crisis [28] and in the light of the urgent energy transition. In this sense, the health crisis and the energy crisis have confirmed how to give priority to the design of open spaces and their external mobility (pedestrian, cycling, boat and micro-mobility) as well as the simultaneous containment of consumption and production of automatic energy and circular economy [29][30][31]. Open spaces include natural parks and archaeological areas that are an integral and substantial part of the ecosystem services of metropolitan cities and the surrounding area [32,33]. Moreover, the strengthening of outdoor activities such as street sports have implicitly confirmed the latent urban and territorial walkability [34]. ...
