At Circle Economy, we regularly review circular frameworks to help business identify metrics that work best for their context. The Circular Transition Indicators (CTI) framework introduced in this paper, allows businesses to determine circularity on a product, business unit, site or company level.
The framework focuses on the circular vs. the linear mass that flows into and out of the business. At the same time, it gives many additional options: These include assessing recovery potential and the actual recovery, identifying ways to optimise and value the mass flow and relating circularity to a business’ revenue.
CTI was developed by businesses for businesses. It is publicly available and free to use for everyone. Any company, regardless of size, and sector can it.
