Circular Economy

Now is the most exhilarating time to be an innovator.

You might be questioning the health of our organisations, social systems, and business models. With good reason: companies are currently deeply rooted in a linear approach to growth - make, use, dispose.

The future is uncertain. As the global population is projected to hit 9 billion by 2050, tensions over resources like food, water and energy are likely to swell along with it. Meanwhile, earth has reached what scientists deem the climate tipping point - and evidence suggests the carbon concentrations in our atmosphere may be permanent. 

 

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was established in 2010 with the aim of accelerating the transition to the circular economy. With an emphasis on online learning, the Foundation provides cutting edge insights and content to support circular economy education, and the systems thinking required to accelerate a transition.
