Businesses are increasingly recognizing the circular economy as a crucial building block in the transition to a net-zero and nature-positive world. But one key question remains: How can they measure their circular performance and its impact on sustainability in a consistent and reliable way?

That’s where the Circular Transition Indicators (CTI) come in. Designed for business by business to unleash the transformative power of the circular economy, CTI offers a universal and quantitative framework for evaluating how circular a company is.

Now in its fourth edition, CTI empowers companies to unlock the value of circularity and drive progress toward their sustainability goals. Explore what CTI can do for you:

  • Measure your impact: CTI enables you to quantify and communicate the climate and nature benefits of your circular initiatives.
  • Strengthen your reporting capabilities: Provide investors and regulatory bodies with circular performance data based on the comprehensive CTI framework.
  • Take action: CTI guides you toward actions to increase circularity within your operations. Identify practical steps to optimize resource use, limit waste and maximize your circular potential.
