Abstract

The evaluation of contemporary production and consumption systems is required by assessments of global sustainability. We place special emphasis on cooperatives' role as game-changing agents for sustainability and the circular economy as a replacement system. Despite the fact that cooperatives have been examined in relation to particular circularity strategies, like recycling, we offer the original cooperative research in Indonesia in relation to all circularity methods. We investigate whether business structures and tactics for the circular economy are compatible with cooperatives. According to our research, circularity originates from the mutualization at the cooperative model's core, which promotes a shared embracing of responsibility in response to demands. By rethinking production and consumption, sharing, and lasting commodities, cooperatives considerably contribute both upstream and downstream to the circular economy, according to the study.
