Circular Economy discusses the replacement of the end-of-life strategy with a closed loop material flow, minimizing raw material consumption by extending the life cycle of materials. Since this approach is expanding from individual organizational actions to supply chain level policies and practices, our objective is to conduct a systematic literature review that presents the role of circular strategies in the development of circular supply chains. This paper contributes to theory and practice by: presenting a clear definition of each R-Strategy; discussing their role to the development of circular SCs; and identifying how SC actors are involved in the R processes.
