Abstract: Implementing sustainable development means shifting from a linear economic vision to promote a loop economy focused on the closing of both material and non-material flows. In this context, the paper aims at investigating consequences of the above – well accepted and known – statement from the private/enterprise point of view, filling an important gap, since most of studies are mainly focused on a public point of view. The paper points out, in order to achieve sustainable company management, the importance of closing both material and non-material flows that are symbioses generating/promoting, and this is not an issue related to tangible infrastructures and to technical tools, but related first of all to culture.
Keywords: sustainable strategies; symbioses; sustainable company management; relationships; creativity; sustainable development; sustainability; culture.
