Circular Economy

Lila Thompson, Chief Executive of British Water said, "The circular economy is an alternative to the traditional linear economy of make, use and dispose.  It keeps resources in use for as long as possible, saving money and reducing waste"

This is one of the many tangible benefits of ENiGMA.

Dame Ellen MacArthur has used her fame from her world beating yachting achievements and combined it with her passion for the planet's health to create and promote The Circular Economy through the foundation she set up.


There's a world of opportunity to re-think and re-design the way we make things.

'Re-Thinking Progress' explores how, through a change in perspective, we can re-design the way our economy works; designing products that can be 'made to be made again' and powering the system with renewable energy.  It questions whether with creativity and innovation we can build a restorative economy.

We at ETC fully support Dame Ellen and British Water in their efforts to work toward a Circular Economy.
