A Hub for Collaboration and Innovation

The Center for the Circular Economy, at Closed Loop Partners, is a New York City- based hub for collaboration, advisory services, and innovation to advance the transition from a linear take-make-waste economy to a circular economy in which materials are shared, re- used, and continuously cycled.

The NextGen Consortium

A multi-year partnership of food-service industry leaders founded by Starbucks and McDonald’s, the NextGen Consortium addresses single-use food packaging waste globally. NextGen Cup is the first Consortium initiative and aims to advance recoverable solutions for the fiber, hot and cold, to-go cup system.
