Circular Economy Reports - Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Circular Economy Reports - Ellen MacArthur Foundation: he purpose of Towards the Circular Economy reports is to make the case for a faster adoption, quantify the economic benefits of circular business models, and lay out pathways for action.

In order to bring together leading experts who are re-thinking around the framework of a circular economy, a Knowledge Transfer Network has been created in LinkedIn.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was formed in 2010 to inspire a generation to re-think, re-design and build a positive future. The Foundation believes that the circular economy provides a coherent framework for systems level re-design and as such offers us an opportunity to harness innovation and creativity to enable a positive, restorative economy.

The Foundation is supported by a group of ‘Founding Partners’ – B&Q, BT, Cisco, National Grid and Renault. Each of these organisations has been instrumental in the initial formation of the Foundation, the instigation of these reports and continues to support its activities in education, communications and working as a business catalyst
