A recent article in the Harvard Business Review highlights research by Georgetown McDonough faculty Vishal Agrawal and Sezer Ulku and their co-authors on how European companies will adapt to recently passed EU legislation mandating circular economies (CEs) in order to increase recycling and to protect the environment:
“These examples show us that companies can take specific actions to break through the barriers that prevent them from benefiting from CEs. The results of doing so are clear: Companies are able to expand their markets and reduce their waste. As more companies take on CEs, either by choice or by government mandate, these lessons offer a practical guide for taking care of business while protecting the environment.”
Agrawal is an associate professor of operations management and Beit Family Faculty Fellow and Ulku is an associate professor of operations management and Greek Family Faculty Fellow.
