Masterclass

The practice of measuring and improving your circularity performance and ambitions

Measuring circularity gives you a reference point, generates actions for improvement and shows you and your (future) customers the results of your efforts. This masterclass gives you a current overview of tools and methods to set up a customised internal dashboard and to inform the market objectively about your ambitions and performance in circular entrepreneurship, so that you can further strengthen your added value in this future-oriented theme.

New circular products and earning models generate innovation and create numerous jobs throughout the value chain. More and more companies are focusing on circular strategies and thus responding to the increasing demand for circular products and services. But how are you able to measure the ambitions and performance of your company, product or value chain in terms of circularity? How can your company ensure that it’s making progress? Which of the many available measurement methods is the most appropriate in your context? How far has the standardisation of circularity measurements got?

Sirris, VITO and Agoria will answer these and many other questions during the masterclass. We rely on testimonials from companies who share their experience with measurement methods and tools. We also provide an overview of the most important and useful tools and what they are best used for.
