The EDDEC Institute, which brings together the expertise of researchers from Polytechnique Montréal, HEC Montréal and the Université de Montréal working on the transition to a circular economy, has carried out a research project to evaluate the circularity potential of three strategic metals for Québec: copper, lithium and iron. This project also made it possible to determine the main environmental impacts of these metals along the value chain. The final report summarizes this work, the detailed results of which are presented in the progress reports below.
Designed for business by business to unleash the transformative power of the circular economy, Circular Transition Indicators v4.0 offers a universal and quantitative framework for evaluating how circular a company is.
