The growth in the relevance of the circular economy is confirmed today by the presence of numerous concurrent initiatives at a global level in terms of both policy level and labelling initiatives. Despite the presence of these initiatives, there is still no international agreement on systems to measure this effort. The ISO/TC 323 initiative aims precisely to develop responses to this challenge over the next three years. This article presents the main features of this initiative, in particular WG3 at a global level and the parallel UNI/CT 057 initiative.
