The Circular Economy

About This Collection

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is an independent charity with the aim of inspiring a generation to re-think, re-design & build a positive future through the vision of a circular economy. Ellen MacArthur founded the Foundation to better understand how on land too we rely on finite resources in the form of materials, energy and water after her experiences as a world class sailor having sailed over 26,000 miles to become the fastest person to circumnavigate the globe single-handed.

The Circular Economy 100 is a global platform bringing together leading companies, emerging innovators and regions to accelerate the transition to a circular economy over a 1000-day (3 year) period. The Annual Summit was held Wednesday 19 June 2013.

Building with a circular economy
November 02, 2021

The built environment significantly contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and uses almost 50% of the materials extracted every year. Of these materials, 15% are wasted in the construction process. We must look for ways to build better. In this episode, we will explore different circular strategies that organisations have adopted in their construction process and hear about exciting examples from around the world — from Ghana to the UK.
Speakers featured:
