World’s standard for the Circular Economy launched. BSI, the business standards company, has launched a new standard for the circular economy – BS 8001: 2017: Framework for implementing the principles of the circular economy in organisations.

As the first standard of its kind both in the UK and globally, BS 8001 was developed to provide guiding principles for organisations and individuals to consider and implement longer term practices, that keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value at all times.

“BS 8001 is a world first and further evidence that BSI, as the UK national standards body, is demonstrating leadership in developing knowledge solutions which address global challenges“.
says David Fatscher, Head of Sustainability – BSI

Working alongside BSI the Ellen MacArthur Foundation contributed to the development of the standard, helping to ensure its practical relevance to business, and its accessibility to those without prior knowledge of the circular economy. The standard is intended to be used flexibly by those who adopt it – irrespective of size, sector, type or location.

This standard provides a valuable introduction to the practical action organisations can take to accelerate their transition to a circular economy.
– says Francois Souchet, Project Manager Insight and Analysis – Ellen MacArthur Foundation

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation works with business, government and academia to build a framework for an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design.
The mission is to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
