Thesis: Implementing a circular economy in Luxembourg (CIRCULUX) – Motivations and barriers of companies for shifting towards circularity

In Luxembourg, the economic behavior and development of companies is closely linked with political guidance and incentives at national level. The most recent frame given by the government is the challenge to move towards a circular economy. The aim of this study is to understand what influences companies in Luxembourg shifting towards circularity and to develop circular economy guiding principles for Luxembourg companies. The research will follow a mixed-methods approach, combining qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. Emphasis will be put on three points highlighted by different authors for need for further research: 1) the socio-cultural specificities of Luxembourg and related challenges for the implementation of a circular economy (e.g. mix of technical standards, multilingualism, corporate cultures), 2) internal dynamics of actor networks and hybrid organizations that aim to bring CE theory into practice and 3) the articulation between sustainability effectiveness and the cost from the perspectives of various stakeholders.

This project is financed by Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR).
