In today’s business environment, organizations are constantly striving to gain a competitive edge by adopting various strategies to comply with the societal and environmental regulations as well as achieve economic success. Organizations may save cost, improve efficiency, find better suppliers, and attract new customers by implementing innovative ways, all of which can lead to a sustainability and profit generation. These steps are especially critical for supply chains that generate a lot of emissions and waste, which is why there is a need for industries to switch from linear to circular supply chain systems, but several barriers are identified in the present literature toward its implementation. However, we anticipate that technology enablers like Decision Support Systems (DSS) can push organizational behavior towards innovative practices through their ability to incorporate different aspects of sustainability, provide opportunities via assessing life cycle indication of the whole value chain and connect strategic and operational levels for CSCP. To evaluate the quantification of data, structural equation modeling (SEM) was used on Smart PLS 4.0 and data was collected with a sample size of 212, the results gained through the analysis coherently provide empirical evidence of mediating role of organizational transformation enablers as a key to articulate the shift to circular supply chain practices while adopting new actions and practices within business model to ensure zero waste management.
