New Urban Biocycles Scoping Paper coming soon

On the 28th March Ellen MacArthur will introduce the Foundation's new scoping paper, Urban Biocycles, produced in collaboration with the World Economic Forumduring a keynote session at the Forum for the Future of Agriculture (FFA 2017)

The new paper explores the significant volume of organic waste flowing through the urban environment and the opportunities available from capturing its value in the form of energy, nutrients and materials, through the application of circular economy principles. 

The Urban Biocycles scoping paper will be available on the 28th March from the Publications section on our website. Watch the livestream of the FFA2017 event here. 

2nd edition of The Circular Economy: A Wealth of Flows - now available in print

In the first edition of The Circular Economy: A Wealth of Flows, published in 2015, the Foundation's Head of Innovation, Ken Webster, laid out the case to shift from a model that is predominantly linear to one that is restorative and regenerative by design. Since then, this new economic model has strengthened and gained momentum. With this in mind, the author grasped the opportunity to revise the initial edition creating an entirely new chapter on the role of digital technology, and introducing new conclusions in the final chapter.
