The future of business is circular, and there’s no room for waste in it. IEDSP’s Circular Economy project, aims to bring circularity into heart of business leadership and practice.

Our goal is to build a critical mass of engagement within and across business to move the circular economy to deliver and scale solutions needed to build a sustainable world.


IEDSP’s Circular Economy project brings companies together to reinvent how business finds, uses and disposes of the materials that make up global trade. It’s a platform that will help to identify and remove the barriers that exist and create scalable solutions that businesses all around the world can use.
By collaborating on solutions that go beyond business as usual, IEDSP’s Circular Economy project will deliver high-impact, large-scale results where resources are used wisely, processes create the greatest possible value, and nothing is wasted.
