Assessment and Evaluation Tools for Circularity
Measuring circularity: The New Normal
In this video, Professor Hans Wamelink discusses the importance of developing evaluation frameworks for circularity, identifying the right indicators, and what should be the right values for these indicators.
- Objective measurement equips designers with the ability to evaluate the impacts of diverse circular strategies; it offers a means to monitor market trends over time; and it helps assess the progress towards policy objectives.
- For measuring circularity, several indicators are needed across the three domains of: [a] material resources; [b] the environment; and [c] existing value.
- The analysis of numerous projects for ‘The New Normal’ project helped benchmark achievable values for these indicators based on the type of object to be built.
