Assessing the sustainability of circular companies

Assessing the sustainability of circular companies

We participated in the online Cresting EU Horizon 2020 survey and we hope you do too. 

"Dear survey respondent

Thank you very much for your valuable time. You were selected to participate in this survey because your company is known as being actively engaged with or interested in circular economy practices. This means, for instance, that your company is following a circular business model, is implementing circular strategies or is selling circular products.

With this survey, we would like to better understand how the circular economy concept is being interpreted and then implemented by pioneering companies like yours, across sectors and countries. In addition, we aim to obtain insights into how companies view the connection between circular economy and sustainability.

Your contribution
We kindly ask you to answer a total of 22 closed questions. The questions concern your company’s:
-  interpretation of circular economy as a concept and its implementation,
-  circularity and sustainability measurement and reporting,
-  drivers and barriers for the implementation of circular economy practices.
With your valuable input, we will be able to provide a scientific foundation for tailoring corporate monitoring systems which allow for adequate measurement of relevant circularity and related sustainability aspects. It should take no more than 25 minutes to complete this survey.

Your benefits
The survey offers the opportunity for you to reflect on your company’s understanding of the circular economy and sustainability. A final report will highlight the key trends and opportunities identified from the survey results. These insights can then be utilised to assess, benchmark and improve your company's implementation of circular economy practices. If you wish you can provide your contact details in the end of the survey to remain informed about the research results or/and to be further involved in the research.
