Webinar - Circular Economy meets LCA, October 25
Event Description

Take your LCA to the next level—calculate your circularity!
Circular Economy and Life Cycle Assessment are two topics relevant to corporate and product sustainability. Many companies are seeking solutions that include metrics for both.

In a joint webinar with ThinkStep and 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.

Join the webinar to learn more about the powerful combination of circularity and LCA metrics.

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).
