Circular Business Assessment

Together with Taival, WWF Germany has developed a Circular Business Assessment, which uses a granular questionnaire to record and evaluate the current status of a company in nine categories. From the evaluation we can derive a status quo and a transformation roadmap.

Success from sustainability and circular economy


“Major global challenges, such as climate change, require a whole new way of thinking. The circular economy calls old practices into question and creates room for sustainable, innovation-driven economic growth. The growth potential of the circular economy in Finland alone is estimated at nearly 2.5 billion euros. “

”Finland’s growing circular economy is constantly creating new business opportunities. Finland’s circular economy can generate 2.3 billion euros in added value annually by the end of 2030. Finnish expertise related to digitalization, artificial intelligence, and robotics also enhances the circular economy.”

The path to change in circular economy

Getting started is always the hardest part. The change to a new business model does not happen overnight. That is why we in the Taival team utilise the Agile method to create progress.

In our experience, quick “sprints” are the best way to get moving, test and verify, so that the entire organization understands the benefits and challenges of sustainable development and the circular economy – and begins to take action.

At which stage is your organisation right now?

Path to change in circular economy

The business environment is changing – what does change look like at your company?

The pressure to respond to climate change is acute. For companies, it appears to be a new kind of risk:

  • Demand falls as customers choose more responsible products and services.
  • Current business does not meet the requirements of new laws and regulations
  • Current competitive advantages are becoming obsolete
  • Investors are interested in more responsible investment targets.


Many companies already have a strong will and ability to make their business more sustainable. The real risk is that your customer will choose a more environmentally responsible partner.
