    Goals / Remit

    The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a charity with the mission to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. The Charity’s communication efforts and insight and analysis are applied across four key areas:

    ● Business
    ● Systemic Initiatives
    ● Institutions, Governments & Cities
    ● Learning

    The Charity aims to have inspired global action at scale and to have created unstoppable momentum towards a circular economy: an economy based on the principles of designing out pollution and waste, keeping products and materials in use and regenerating natural systems. It is an economy that is regenerative by design, distributed, diverse, inclusive and underpinned by renewable materials and renewable energy.

    Main EU files targeted

    As a NGO regulated by the UK charity commission, the Foundation does not represent sectorial or industrial interests, and interacts with EU institutions as provider of economic analysis, case studies and insights on the specific topic of circular economy - for which the Foundation is the globally leading reference point. In the context of the EU's Circular Economy Action Plan from March 2020, the Foundation regularly meets with various DG's of the European Commission, and participates in discussions and events organised by the European Parliament. In 2023, the Foundation plans to engage on a few key EU policy initiatives including the EU Textile Strategy, the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation, and the revision of the EU Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive. The Foundation also supports the Global Alliance on Resource Efficiency and Circular Economy (GACERE) which was initiated by the European Commission, UNEP and UNIDO in February 2021.
