Leading sustainability indicators for circular economy
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This database is a comprehensive collection of leading sustainability-related indicators for manufacturing companies. The indicators are collected through a systematic literature review with following information registered: name, detailed description, formula, unit of measurement, and purpose of measurement. The leading indicators in the database are classified according to environmental, economic and social dimensions of sustainability, for a range of business processes and various circular economy strategies. This classification allows the configuration of different combinations of circular solutions to be exploited in various business processes, thus displaying a suitable set of sustainability performance indicators to be measured early in the decision-making stage.
The database of performance indicators is a first building block of a foundation for the development of a sustainability screening framework, which will also comprise a procedure for a systematic indicator selection and guidelines for decision-making for sustainability in a circular economy context.
