With sustainability going mainstream, there is rising pressure on companies to demonstrate circular performance. The Circular Transitions Indicators (CTI) framework helps companies respond to this growing demand by providing a simple and sector-agnostic way to measure circularity and giving insights into how to reduce primary resource use and waste generation.

WBCSD and 30 companies shaped CTI v3.0 to support the business need for a universal and consistent way to measure circularity. Building on the previous version launched in 2021, CTI v3.0 is enhanced with:

  • a new methodology to measure the impact of recycled sourcing on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions
  • two new indicators to consider lifetime extension strategies
  • guidance to support companies in making decisions and prioritizing upscaling actions.
