โ—พ๏ธ answering the question how businessesโ€™ circular performance & #sustainability impact can be measured in a consistent & reliable way,
โ—พ๏ธ offering a universal quantitative framework for evaluating how #circular a company is.

Circular #transition indicators have at least 3 important functions:
1๏ธโƒฃ Measuring impact: enabling the companies to quantify & communicate the climate & nature benefits of their circular initiatives.
2๏ธโƒฃ Strengthening reporting capabilities: providing #investors & regulators with circular performance #data.
3๏ธโƒฃ Facilitating action: guiding companies to increase #circularity within their operations, identifying practical steps to optimize resource use, limit waste & maximize their circular potential (#circulareconomy).
Consequently, these indicators can help companies to prepare for their transition based on insights into their circular performance, associated #risk & opportunities, by providing information about:
โ—พ๏ธ the companiesโ€™ circularity level,
โ—พ๏ธ the way how targets for improvement can be set,
โ—พ๏ธ the way how improvements resulting from their circular activities can be monitored.

โœ… It is simple, flexible, applicable across industries & value chains, comprehensive, complementary to the companiesโ€™ existing sustainability efforts, agnostic as to material, sector or #technology.
โœ… Its core is the self-assessment which determines the companyโ€™s circular performance.
โœ… It focuses primarily on the circular & linear mass that flows through the company, and provides insights into overall resource use optimization, the link between companiesโ€™ circular material flows & their business performance.
โœ… It gives insights into how circularity helps to achieve sustainability objectives related to #climate & #nature.
โœ… It guides companies in scoping & preparing the assessment, interpreting the results, understanding their risks & opportunities, prioritizing actions & establishing SMART targets to monitor progress.
โœ… The CTI Online Tool (in partnership with Circular IQ) even offers the possibility to assess value chain implications.
โœ… Instead of providing a single rating, it empowers the companies to determine whether the results are in accordance with their ambitions.
