Abstract / Description

Purpose:
This study aims to conduct a comprehensive review and network-based analysis by exploring future research directions in the nexus of circular economy (CE) and sustainable business performance (SBP) in the context of digitalization.

Design/Methodology/Approach:
A systematic literature review (SLR) methodology was adopted to present the review in the field of CE and SBP in the era of digitalization. WOS and SCOPUS databases were considered in the study to identify and select the articles. The bibliometric study was carried out to analyse the significant contributions made by authors, various journal sources, countries, and different universities in the field of CE and SBP in the era of digitalization. Further, network analysis is carried out to analyse the collaboration among authors from different countries.

Findings:
The study revealed that digitalization could be a great help in developing sustainable circular products. Moreover, the customers' involvement is necessary for creating innovative sustainable circular products using digitalization. A move towards the product-service system was suggested to accelerate the transformation towards CE and Digitalization.

Originality/Value:
The paper discusses digitalization and CE practices' adoption to enhance the SP of the firms. This work's unique contribution is the systematic literature analysis and bibliometric study to explore future research directions in the nexus of CE and SP in the context of digitalization. The present study has been one of the first efforts to examine the literature of CE and SBP integration from a digitalization perspective along with bibliometric analysis.
