H&M joins 'The Circular Economy 100' club

Jun '13
From a sustainable perspective the transition from a linear to a circular economy is necessary. A circular economy requires innovation of material and product reuse, as well as related business models. By using materials more effectively, economic growth will eventually be detached from the use of natural resources and ecosystems. In such an economy, the lower use of raw materials allows to create more value.

The Circular Economy 100 is a global programme aimed at bringing together a network of 100 leading companies, emerging innovators and regions to speed up the shift to more a circular economy. The programme supports its members in finding new commercial opportunities through its focus on sharing best practice, capacity building and collective problem solving.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was launched in 2010 to inspire a generation to rethink, redesign and build a positive future. The Foundation believes that the circular economy provides a coherent framework for systems level redesign and as such offers us an opportunity to harness innovation and creativity to enable a positive, restorative economy.
