Circular economy and the transition from take, make, waste

This week, Andrew Morlet, CEO of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, joins the ESG Agenda to highlight that a circular economy goes beyond recycling. By directing efforts into business innovation, we can re-design the products we use to stay in the system for longer. Andrew says that the circular economy is ultimately a better model for economic growth, offering new revenue and cost saving opportunities for business amounting to multi-trillions of dollars

Andrew joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in 2013 to define and launch its business programmes and became Chief Executive in 2014. Previously, Andrew was the Global Managing Director for information and technology strategy at Accenture and a partner with McKinsey & Company, developing corporate and business unit strategy, working at the board level of leading global companies across multiple sectors in the USA, UK, Europe, and Asia. Prior to entering consulting Andrew worked in the not for profit sector as a clinical epidemiology and healthcare research scientist.
