What is Circular Economy? Circular economy aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value, at all times, and to decouple economic growth from consumption.

Identify, Measure and Monitor Circular Economy

thinkstep offers a wide range of solutions to identify, measure and monitor sustainability performance in the context of Circular Economy. Let us help you pave the way toward contributing to a circular economy.

The Circular Economy (CE) has gained tremendous traction in the last decade from businesses, academics, NGOs and governments in the last decade. The European Union and China have included CE into their environmental policies and the US Chamber of Commerce has publicly endorsed the concept. 

Is your organization part of the Circular Economy?

Here are some helpful questions with regards to Circular Economy and your organization:

  • Do you know what circularity means for your business, products and services?
  • How strong is your business case for your circularity initiatives?
  • Have you assessed the environmental performance of your circularity approach?
  • Is the circularity you are / will be applying better and more sustainable or could it be circular for circularity’s sake?
  • Are you familiar with the Material Circularity Indicator (MCI) and its benefits?
  • Do you also consider social impacts of your circularity initiative?
