Circularity Assessment

"Opening a Gate to Circularity"

Aim:

Perform a 5-step Circularity Assessment of the processes, products and services of a company integrating Circular Economy concepts. Assessment is oriented to maximize the efficiency in the use and exploitation of materials and resources, as well as to minimize and valorize the waste generated.

Added Value:

  • Identification of competitiveness improvement and new business opportunities
  • Identification of opportunities to enhance adaptability and flexibility of the company and to reduce risks related with changes of market and regulations associated to environmental impact and waste management.
  • Indicators to improve the economical, environmental and social sustainability of the company (Sustainability Impact Indicators).
