Connected Energy joins The Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s ‘CE100’

Joining with nine other innovators and thought leaders, the Foundation’s Circular Economy 100 network is a natural fit for the firm.

The Circular Economy 100 (CE100) Network provides a pre-competitive space to learn, share knowledge, and build new collaborative approaches. “The network aligns perfectly with our ethos on working with partners to create new collaborations, advancing the work we do using second life batteries,” said Matthew Lumsden, Connected Energy CEO.

The network welcomed a new cohort of ten innovators and thought leaders at the end of September who, like Connected Energy, are already prototyping and scaling circular business models, products, and materials.

The CE100 believe that most global businesses understand that in order to remain competitive, a circular economy must feature in their strategy. Success requires significant individual effort but serious actors also acknowledge the necessity to work collectively to build new markets.

“We’re looking forward to developing our connections with other CE100 partners to see where we can both learn from their expertise and help bring added value to their circular economy approaches,” said Matthew.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation was launched in 2010 to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. Since its creation the charity has emerged as a global thought leader, establishing the circular economy on the agenda of decision makers across business, government, and academia.
