Circular Transition Indicators (CTI)

    The momentum to step away from a take-make-waste economic model is growing and we see both the private and public sectors to begin setting ambitious circular targets. Transparency and alignment are critical to establishing a common language across industries and governments.

    For this reason, together with 30 of our member companies we have developed a universal and transparent framework to measure circularity. The Circular Transition Indicators (CTI), now at its second edition, is a simple, objective and quantitative framework that can be applied to businesses of all industries, sizes, value chain positions and geographies.

    Built by business, for business, CTI provides companies with a common language to use for internal decision-making and communicating to key stakeholders. Both CTI reports and online tool are now available on these links: CTI v2.0 report, CTI v1.0 reportCTI tool.

    The CTI tool

    Digitization and smart software solutions enable companies to accelerate their transition towards the circular economy. We partnered with Circular IQ to develop the free online tool that supports and guides companies through the CTI process. The tool structures data, calculates the outcome and helps companies to draw conclusions and formulate actions. It can support users to reach out to internal stakeholders or value chain partners for data requests that avoid confidentiality issues.

    CTI implementation partners

    To support companies in adoption of CTI into their strategy setting, we have trained experts in CTI that can help prepare and perform CTI assessments, as well as interpret the outcomes and translate them into action.
