The circular economy associates the supply and demand of supply chain industries to improve resource efficiency.

An analysis on supply chain industry has been conducted with the focus on 6Rs such as Recover, Reuse, Remanufacture, Recycle, Redesign, Reduce. The article highlights the opportunities available in the transformation from linear economy to circular economy, which improves social, economic and environmental drivers of the organization.
