Circular Economy meets LCA
Joint Webinar with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Take your LCA to the next level—calculate your circularity!

Circular Economy and Life Cycle Assessment are two crucial topics relevant to corporate and product sustainability. Many companies are seeking solutions that include metrics for both.

In our joint webinar "Circular Economy meets LCA" with Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the expert on Circular Economy, you will get answers, including on other topics, such as:

  • How to quantify a Circular Economy and to calculate the circularity of companies and products?

Guest speaker Sven Herrmann from the Ellen Mac Arthur Foundation gives you insights into the “Circularity Indicators” project that resulted in the development of the Material Circularity Indicator (MCI).

  • Is there any tool that allows calculation of both circularity and LCA?

There is! The new GaBi Circularity Toolkit is the only software on the market enabling you to calculate both circularity (MCI) and LCA, reducing the effort required to do it separately.

  • How does it work?

Pete Shonfield from thinkstep will demonstrate how to model the life cycle of a product and to provide LCA and MCI results.

About Ellen MacArthur Foundation:

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was founded in 2010 with the goal of advancing the transition from a consumption and disposal-oriented linear economy to a resource-efficient circular economy. Since then, many globally renowned companies have partnered with the Foundation. Together with Granta Design, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation launched the project "Circularity Indicators". The aim of the project has been the development of a measuring methodology for the quantitative assessment of recycling economies. Because businesses require access to data about their circularity, the result was the Material Circularity Indicator (MCI).
