Creating shared value

The different forms of circular economy

Create and share value: this concept captures the essence of the circular economy, a unique approach to production and the market that has become more widespread in western economies since the financial crisis of 2008. As a manifestation of a new development model running parallel to pre-crisis capitalism and of an economy “incorporated into society after decades of separation”, the circular economy must be well understood in order to be used properly. For this reason, it is important to read “Perché parlare di economia circolare?” (Why should we talk about circular economy?), a recently published article written by Laura Gherardi for Equilibri.

The article aptly summarises the concept and its applications from different points of view, both business and family: residents, producers, “contributors”. Thus, the circular economy is described from a social standpoint and from a perspective of both the production material and the environment. Gherardi successfully deals with the topic’s complexity, breaking down the different aspects and critical issues. In other words, the circular economy is explained as an approach that creates not only economic value, but also social, environmental and human value, all rolled into one.

This is done whilst accounting for the ultimate goal of this approach: to make the planet more liveable. At the same time, the author attempts to visualise results related to day-to-day production and social relationships. In doing so, a subject emerges that is suspended between the economy and a more general study of society, between production organisation and a new, more complete business culture.

Laura Gherardi’s article, which is written in clear, concrete language, is a useful synthesis of a subject that is complex and in continuous evolution. It is worthwhile to read it together with other articles on the same subject.
