Universidad Loyola, through its Development Institute, is a member of the Íñigo Loyola Initiative, a transformative research network on competitiveness at the service of inclusive and sustainable wellbeing, composed of members of universities of the Association of Universities Entrusted to the Society of Jesus in Latin America (AUSJAL).


Issue 10/2022 of Orkestra Notebooks focuses on the issue of decent work in 2021-2022, due to the precariousness of work and job losses generated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The aim of this chapter is to study the impact on decent work, as well as on the objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UN, 2022), of the 5 types of circular economy business models (Accenture, 2015): Circular sourcing, Resource recovery, Product life extension, Platform sharing and Product with service.
