The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, or how to accelerate the transition to a circular economy

Ellen McArthur Foundation

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation develops and promotes the idea of a circular economy. It works with, and inspires, business, academia, policymakers, and institutions to mobilise systems solutions at scale, globally.

Its vision is a new economic system that delivers better outcomes for people and the environment. Business models, products, and materials are designed to increase use and reuse, replicating the balance of the natural world, where nothing becomes waste and everything has value.

A circular economy, increasingly built on renewable energy and materials, is distributed, diverse, and inclusive. The Foundation’s work focuses on six interlinking areas:

  1. Learning
  2. Business
  3. Institutions, Governments and Cities
  4. Insight and Analysis
  5. Systemic Initiatives
  6. Communications.
