CTI Sector Guidance for Electronics

Author: WBCSD

The adoption of a standardized measurement protocol for circularity plays a critical role in uniting the electronics industry on common sustainability objectives. Electronics sector businesses need a methodology that can credibly quantify and steer the impact of circular strategies on net-zero, nature-positive and equity goals. In response to this need, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) developed the Circular Transition Indicators (CTI) as a flexible business methodology to measure circularity.

The CTI electronics sector guidance, developed in a collaborative effort with CEP and WBCSD partners and members, aims to create a shared understanding and vision in the industry. The objective is to steer the industry to evaluate, adjust and enhance practices to foster a financially sustainable circular electronics industry. By adapting these indicators to the unique contexts of the electronics sector and getting the sector to employ them, the guidance creates a clear path for the industry’s transition to a circular economy, supporting individual companies in measuring their performance in an industry-aligned way and steering all players in the value chain towards a future that is both sustainable and inclusive for all.
