This article aims to provide an insight on how the sustainability related performance indicators can support decision making for circular economy strategies aiming at extending life time of existing products, components and materials (through service, repair and recycling) taking a cross business process view. The article provides an example of indicators and their application to a hypothetical case study. We follow the indicator selection procedure, with the help of which the set of relevant indicators is selected for the CE initiative assessment. By taking a case example, we demonstrate i) the importance of operating with indicators across business processes; and ii) the importance of a dynamic indicator set (as opposed to the ‘prescribed’ indicators). Based on the final performance indicator set relevant for the case, the decision can be made to either implement the strategy, select/combine with another or avoid the implementation altogether.
