Circular Economy
Calculate your Circularity!

The missing puzzle: how to measure Circularity?

The Circular Economy is a leading concept in the new era of sustainability that seeks to “do more with less”, encouraging resource efficiency by recycling and reusing materials rather than disposing of them at end of life. The Material Circularity Indicator provides a way to evaluate the circularity of product systems, making it easier to compare different options and to develop more circular products.

The MCI will increase (show more circularity) if the product system includes a greater proportion of “restorative” material flows (e.g. recycled content or being recycled or reused at end of life) or if the product lifetime is increased or it is used more intensively.

The solution: GaBi Circularity Toolkit

Quantify, benchmark and communicate the circularity of your products

The GaBi Circularity Toolkit allows the Material Circularity Indicator (MCI), developed by Ellen MacArthur Foundation and Granta Design, to be implemented within conventional GaBi LCA models. GaBi, in conjunction with the Circularity Toolkit, is the only software on the market that supports both LCA and MCI calculations.
