Workshop: developing key performance indicators for industrial-urban circular economy initiatives

28 June 2023, 10:00 - 13:30 CET

The Hubs4Circularity Community of Practice, a Horizon Europe project of which EIT Climate-KIC is a partner, invites you to an online collective sensemaking workshop to discuss and reflect on the various KPI development processes for industrial-urban symbiosis and circular economy initiatives. 

The circular economy brings its own unique monitoring and reporting challenges, as per the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive and the related Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) reporting requirements.

This collective sensemaking session will allow us to connect, build relationships for collaboration and reflect on the process of KPI development. We will also identify (where possible) common KPIs that are transversal across different projects.

We will engage with the diversity of the approaches in action, hear stories and get inspired from the experience of developing KPIs across different projects. We will align various KPI sets and reflect on a possible common set, that can both serve as an overall blueprint and be tailored to specific projects. We will link this to the future sustainability reporting regulations and link it back to participants’ own work.

Sensemaking is a flagship EIT Climate-KIC practice, used as part of EIT Climate-KIC systems innovation methodology.

Please note it is a highly interactive event, and we encourage your active participation in the discussions.
