The article is focused on an urgent and global issue of water pollution due to inefficient nature management. The authors examine it in the context of the Circular Economy paradigm and environmental and economic security of territories. A number of tasks, including the systematization of the existing methodology for assessing the wastewater treatment efficiency; the development of a new toolkit as part of the environmental and economic security policy of the territories that would meet the principles of the circular economy; testing the proposed indicators set to check the progress towards circular economy, are under consideration as part of the current research. Clear and representative results were obtained to evaluate the efficiency of the wastewater treatment technological process under three different scenarios in various territories. These data is quite simple for interpretation by a wide range of stakeholders and can be used as benchmarking for spatial industry assessment or analysis of the dynamics of a particular business entity. The proposed toolkit for assessing the effectiveness of water treatment taking into account the principles of the circular economy can be used as an element of public non-financial reporting, for example, within the framework of disclosure standards in the field of plumbing and sewage, as well as in the national benchmarking system. Carrying out benchmarking involves a process aimed at searching, evaluating and transferring the best business practices and introducing the best available technologies. It enables one to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the enterprise, including aspects that need to be optimized. Such information will ensure long-term sustainability, transparency and security for the main stakeholders: for investors - clear rules of work, for consumers -high quality services at affordable prices, for state and municipal authorities - providing residents with infrastructure and solving modernization problems.
