Abstract: In response to calls from industry for framework guiding the strategies for sustainable development, a concept of Circular Economy emerged recently, aiming at integration of economic activity and environmental prosperity in a sustainable way. Circular Economy, as a national strategy, has been implemented in China and announced in Kazakhstan. This paper presents an attempt to trace the origins of the Circular Economy from various theories: industrial ecosystem, technological design, and eco-discipline. The research provides a concept map of the Circular Economy concept.
