Ellen MacArthur Foundation Sustainability Profile

We develop and promote the idea of a circular economy

We’re a charity committed to creating a circular economy, a new economic system in which we design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems. It’s a system that delivers better outcomes for people, and the environment. We create original research on the benefits of a circular economy, and how it can contribute to solving global challenges like climate change and biodiversity loss. We also explore the opportunities across stakeholders and sectors, and highlight examples of how circular economy principles are being put into practice today. We support organisations and individuals with formal learning opportunities through our circular economy courses and create resources for teachers and academics.
