Abstract

Advances in technology have led to the rise of Sharing Economy (SE), which has become a strong competitor for capitalist companies in various fields. Apart from the economic aspects of such phenomenon, the activities of the SE can have social and environmental impacts, which brings sustainability pillars into mind. In this paper, based on system thinking, a causal loop diagram that is a part of system dynamics modelling is applied for visualizing the relationships between SE and sustainability pillars. The reinforcing and balancing loops modelled show the dynamics in the system, which help decision makers to gain a deeper and more accurate understanding of the current and potential future mutual interactions between the SE and sustainability.
