Abstract: In recent years, the quick rise and fall of e-scooters has brought up questions with regards to its disposal, in terms of various environmental concerns and the sustainability of these practices. There is also no system in place in the future to deal with the disposal of e-scooters. Hence, with the advent of reverse logistics and circular economy being implemented into other industries and other countries, such as the automobile industry to a degree of success, this report aims to investigate these case studies. Key factors and their role in the successful implementation of a circular economy from these case studies will be analysed, namely logistical, technical, environmental, economic and social factors. Although logistics and reverse logistics is a major component of a circular economy, the report will still discuss other factors due to the comprehensive nature of a circular economy. This report will then consolidate and identify a guiding framework, making use of the key factors, and apply them in a Singaporean context. Ultimately, there is no question that the foundation of the paradigm shift in linear economy to a circular one in Singapore for e-scooters must have heavy involvement by the government and all stakeholders.
