Circular metrics for businesses
The business case for circularity is strong. Many businesses have already recognised that the circular economy brings them a competitive advantage by leading the innovation curve, opening up new markets, improving customer relations and increasing brand value. A circular economy also helps tackle inevitable linear risks, from price volatility and pressure from new legislation to supply chain failures.

But how do you assess the circularity of your business? Which metric should you use and how do you track progress? Which strategies and KPIs deliver lasting and trackable impact—alongside commercial value?

At Circle Economy, we help businesses navigate the increasingly complex landscape of circularity metrics and indicators in three ways:


We directly support CSR agents, innovation and sustainability managers and other professionals with setting up the baseline,  finding and adopting circular metrics and indicators. We assist in finding the right KPIs to track the progress on circularity and help to link them to circular corporate strategy. We do this with the help of the Circle Scan for Businesses offering.

We connect diverse stakeholders to drive the application of metrics. We bring together key stakeholders to advance the debate and foster alignment between metrics users, developers and those facilitating and standardising their use.

The Circular Economy Indicator Coalition (CEIC) drives the application of metrics in key sectors and application contexts by providing oversight and access to relevant indicators, bringing together key stakeholders to map out gaps and formulate action agendas, and forming expert consortia to address identified gaps. For example, the CEIC is creating an oversight of relevant circular indicators for the financial sector.
