Circular Economy reporting – a global study

In March 2020, the European Commission adopted the new circular economy action plan (CEAP). It is one of the seven building blocks of the European Green Deal, Europe's agenda for sustainable growth.

Furthermore, as part of the EU “Sustainable Finance Action Plan” the EU Taxonomy, which came into force in July 2020, aims at establishing a clear classification system to mobilise finance for sustainable growth. The EU Taxonomy includes “The Transition to a Circular Economy”.

This study, conducted for the first time in 2023, analyses the current reporting status of 443 companies included in 13 world’s leading stock market indices across five production oriented sectors: Consumer Discretionary, Consumer Staples, Industrials, Materials and Information Technology. SDiD is a Circular Economy data boutique and has one of the world’s most comprehensive set of Circular Economy data.
