Ellen MacArthur Foundation

We work with business, govt. & academia to build a framework for a circular economy that is restorative and regenerative, by design.

Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.


The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was established in 2010 with the aim of accelerating the transition to the circular economy. Since its creation the charity has emerged as a global thought leader, establishing the circular economy on the agenda of decision makers across business, government and academia. With the support of its Core Philanthropic Funder, SUN, and Knowledge Partners (Arup, IDEO, and SYSTEMIQ), the Foundation’s work focuses on the five interlinking areas of Education, Business and Government, Insight and Analysis, Systemic Initiatives and Communications.
