In the last decades, green and sustainable supply chain management practices have been developed in
efforts to try and reduce the negative consequences of production and consumption processes on the
environment. In parallel to this, the circular economy discourse has been propagated in the industrial
ecology and production economics literature and, lately, in business and practice. The ideals of circular
economy principles suggests that the frontiers of environmental sustainability can be pushed by em
phasising the idea of transforming products in such a way that there are workable relationships between
ecological systems and economic growth.
By arguing for these ideals to be integrated into green supply chain management theory and practice,
the paper uses a case study from the construction industry to demonstrate the environmental gains in
terms of carbon emissions that can be achieved through some circular economy principles as against
traditional linear production systems. The paper therefore asserts that an integration of circular economy
principles within sustainable supply chain management can provide clear advantages from an en
vironmental point view despite some external supply chain influences and scenarios.
Further to this, emerging supply chain management challenges and market dynamics are also
highlighted and discussed.
