Measuring circularity – Working agreements for circular construction
This guide is intended as a step towards a core method for measuring circularity in the construction
sector. Such a method measures the degree of circularity, e.g. of a construction product, a building
or a bridge. The intention is that the core measurement method put forward by Platform CB’23 will
stimulate the transition to a circular construction economy.
The guide is relevant to anyone engaged in circular construction. The core measurement method can
be applied anywhere in the construction sector: in the buildings sector as well as in the civil and
hydraulic engineering sector (infrastructure). All parties involved in the construction sector –
including clients and contractors – can use the core measurement method. The guide is also of
interest for people who work with comparable measurement methods or who work on circular
policy, either in the Netherlands or internationally.
