The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was established in 2010 with the aim of accelerating the transition to a circular economy.
Since its creation the charity has emerged as a global thought leader, establishing circular economy on the agenda of decision makers across business, government and academia. The Foundation’s work focuses on four interlinking areas, Education, Business and Government, Insight and Analysis and Communications.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is leading on the dissemination of project outcomes, making use of its extensive contact network around the world. Additionally it is providing support to the work around Design for Multiple Lifecycles, Supply Chains and Business Models, and the evaluation of the industrial pilots. The Foundation also organises the Advisory Board.
