Baselining for a Circular Toronto

What programmes, policies, partnerships and investments are necessary to put Toronto’s circular economy goals into action—and what does the city have to gain? Baselining for a Circular Toronto is the first major study attempting to answer these questions. To build a shared understanding of how to transition from the linear ‘take-make-waste’ system to a circular economy, the City of Toronto, with the support of the David Suzuki Foundation and Circle Economy, has studied the current state of resource use in the city.


Baselining for a Circular Toronto supports the City’s circular economy goals by establishing a baseline circularity analysis—providing a clear starting point for action. This study can inform the basis of future work, including the potential development of a Circular Economy Roadmap for Toronto.


Phase one of the project—the landscape analysis—assessed the current state of circularity in Toronto, and how this may help or hinder the ability to transition to a circular economy.


Phase two—the material flow analysis—modelled material consumption and disposal in three key economic sectors (waste management, construction, and the food system) and projected future material consumption and waste generation rates for 2030.


Phase three—the final report—identified key focus areas and high-level next steps for the City’s circular transition, highlighting which partners could contribute.

“Ends” Framework
‘Ends’ frameworks help us envision the dot on the horizon and ensure the end goal we are working towards takes key concepts that we care about into account.
“Means” Framework
‘Means’ frameworks provide us with the tools to translate visions into concrete realities. Where ‘ends’ frameworks put a dot on the horizon, ‘means’ frameworks pave the way.
