The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a UK-based, globally-active charity working to accelerate the transition from a linear, take-make-waste economy towards a circular economy – an economy that tackles planetary challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution, by eliminating waste, circulating products and materials at their highest value, and regenerating nature.
To achieve this transition, all parts of the economy need to be engaged. The Foundation does this through its Network of businesses, international institutions, governments, cities, universities, non-governmental organisations, innovators, and many others. The goal is to scale circular economy capacity, address common barriers to progress, understand the necessary enabling conditions, and pilot circular economy practices.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation works across key touchpoints in the economy. Examples include the plastic packaging, fashion and food industries as well as with leaders in the finance industry, global cities and designers.
