The Dayrize methodology implements an integrated approach to quantify potential sustainability performance and resilient benefits, at a product level, across 5 dimensions. Each component of the methodology is grounded in the latest scientific developments in the field of sustainability, combining well-known globally recognized standards and scientific evidences, ensuring confidence in your insights.


Circularity measures the extent to which a product and packaging design, as well as the surrounding business model, are contributing to slowing down the material loops (keeping materials in use for longer) and closing them (where the waste from one process becomes input for another). The comprehensive Circularity assessment enables brands to make informed decisions on where to focus resources to increase the Circularity of their products and reach their Circularity goals.

Ecosystem Impact

Ecosystem Impact takes into account a product’s impact on water systems and biodiversity along the supply chain. The extent to which your product influences the environment is determined by the type of material used, the sourcing location as well as the state of the environment at that location.

Biodiversity Impact

  • Land area
  • Biodiversity importance
  • Proportion of biodiversity lost

Water System Impact

  • Water depleted for resource extraction
  • Water depleted for manufacturing
  • Overall water risk

Climate Impact

Climate Impact assesses the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the product from resource extraction, manufacturing and all distribution points including delivery to the door of the customer. Highlighting where the most GHG impact is through a product’s supply chain enables brands to make informed decisions on where to focus resources in order to reduce a product’s impact and reach your net zero goals

Resource Extraction

  • List of materials


  • Electricity sourcing
  • Energy use


  • Location(s)
  • Transport mode

Livelihoods & Wellbeing

Livelihoods & Wellbeing takes a risk-based approach to detect the locations with the most critical likelihood of worker rights abuse. We look into guarantees from eco-labels that apply to this product, risks in supply-chain countries, and assurances registered in the survey. We complement this data with the datasets from the international Labour Organization (ILO), Unicef, and the World Bank to assess labour-related risks in specific countries and industry sectors.

Resource Extraction

  • Living wage
  • Gender wage gap

Working Conditions

  • Working hours
  • Collective bargaining

Workers Protection

  • Youth labour
  • Work safety


  • Supply chain transparency


Purpose evaluates the necessity of this product and its potential to displace other environmental impacts. The scarcity and finite nature of natural resources means they should be deployed for the most worthy applications. At Dayrize, we measure that “worthiness” by whether a product is meeting essential human needs, and whether it helps develop better habits, or transition the economy and/or society into a more sustainable one overall.
