CEC’s activity is non-profit, global and open, anyone can join the club online for free. The club exists to spur collaboration by connecting professionals, because together we can have a higher impact. Although the club was founded in London by Anna Tarí, CEC is ran voluntarily by engaged club members that are based all over the world.

Membership is formed of over 2,600 individuals and organisations, including designers, engineers, economists and strategists who are setting the world standard around energy, fashion, food, manufacturing, cities and other sectors. Current and new members have the possibility to coordinate CEC activities in their cities by applying to the local organisers program.

The concept of the circular economy is grounded in the study of non-linear, feedback-rich systems. This new framework may be the biggest revolution in the global economy in 250 years as it challenges companies and societies to rethink the current models and relationships. The circular model is restorative and regenerative by design, and aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value at all times.

With the yearly 80% of unrecovered materials from the $3.2 trillion worth that are used only in consumer goods (McKinsey, 2014), the circular economy is the world’s largest opportunity.
