Abstract

The circular economy seeks its development through various efforts. Specific action guidelines and indicators are required for different levels, types of organizations, regions, etc. Likewise, diverse experiences are required to build indicators for each reality. A review of some indicators is made, and specific evidence is presented for each material or country. Future research is needed to test various indicators for their importance and validity.
