Abstract

Recently, other disciplines and scientific communities discuss the Circular Economy paradigm as a key vehicle to establish more sustainable production and consumption patterns by decoupling economic output and emissions. Conversations about information system solutions for sustainable production and consumption, however, remain notably absent in the Information Systems research community. We develop a taxonomy of information flows relevant for the successful application of Circular Economy practices. Drawing on conceptual and empirical data, we categorized nine Circular Economy practices based on their underlying material flow net-works and identified four classes of information flows that enable the proper functioning of these practices. Our work (a) provides a conceptual foundation for Circular Economy-related conversations within the Information Systems research community, (b) stimulates future solution-oriented Information Systems research for environmentally sustainable production and consumption, and (c) strengthens inter-disciplinary research.
