Circular Economy monitoring

In the transition to a more circular economy, monitoring the key trends and patterns is key to understand how the various elements of the circular economy are developing over time, to help identify success factors in Member States and to assess whether sufficient action has been taken.

As committed in the Circular Economy Action Plan (2015), in January 2018 the European Commission has put forward a monitoring framework composed of a set of key indicators that capture the main elements of the circular economy (communication COM(2018)29 and its accompanying document SWD/2018/017).

The Circular Economy Monitoring Framework draws upon and complements the existing Resources Efficiency Scoreboard and Raw Materials Scoreboard, which were developed in recent years by the Commission. The Circular Economy Monitoring Framework is presented on a dedicated Eurostat website, where all the underlying data are available and that will be kept up-to-date.
