  • Abstract:
    Circular economy (CE) is gaining traction in the construction industry, providing a responsible business model to decouple construction activities from excessive consumption of finite resources. This study conducted a systematic literature review to consolidate and conceptualize the factors that induce and enable construction organizations and stakeholders to adopt CE solutions in the construction industry. The analysis revealed 88 drivers of CE adoption in the construction industry, clustered into eight dimensions, comprising knowledge, organizational, environmental, social, business, regulatory, technological and supply chain drivers. The study further modelled the path dependencies and hierarchical structure of drivers of CE adoption in the construction industry. Thus, the findings provide a holistic insight into the factors inducing stakeholders to adopt CE in the construction industry. The model can provide decision support to develop integrated policies and targeted interventions to facilitate a successful transition to CE in the construction industry.
