CE-oriented culture readiness is a tool that assesses the level of readiness of companies to apply circular economy at the cultural level.

The tool is divided into five building blocks (values, mindsets, behaviors, capabilities, and competences) that present elements that characterize an organizational culture oriented to the circular economy. As result, the tool will classify the company in six levels of readiness to implement a CE-oriented culture; will provide a pairwise comparison of the performance of the organization between the five different blocks cited previously; and a radar chart with the overall performance of the organization. Based on these results the tool will provide guidelines to the company to initiate the journey towards a more Circular Economy or to foster the maturity of the company towards a more CE-oriented culture.

The estimated time to answer the questionnaire is between 15 and 20 minutes.

The tool is the result of the PhD research of Ana Carolina Bertassini and is published in the journal Sustainable Production and Consumption.
