CBT founded on extensive research and best practices
The methodology behind the Circular Benchmark Tool (CBT) is developed in a stepwise approach based on ‘learning, validating, and applying’.
The indicators assessed in the CBT are based on extensive field and desktop research in which over 90 global (policy) papers were analysed. After a first selection of indicators (197), they were carefully categorized in 6 overarching indicators to structure the content within the CBT.
As circular economy is a topic in constant development, so it is and should be this monitoring framework for regions.
