An Innovation Center for Research, Analysis and Collaboration
Center for the Circular Economy
We work to accelerate the transition to a circular economy in which materials are shared, re-used and continuously recycled.
We take a holistic, end-to-end approach to innovating, testing and scaling the circular solutions of the future. Our expertise spans the full lifecycle of a product, connecting upstream innovation to downstream recovery infrastructure and end markets. We work across brands, countries, sectors and industries to create the systems change necessary for the advancement of the circular economy.
