Ellen MacArthur

Founder, Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Made yachting history in 2005 as the fastest solo sailor to circumnavigate the globe. Having become acutely aware of the finite nature of the resources on which our linear economy relies, retired from professional sailing to launch the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in 2010. The Foundation works to accelerate the transition to a circular economy, has helped establish the subject on the agenda of decision-makers around the world, has launched global initiatives on plastics, fashion and food, has developed innovation networks with educators, businesses and governments, and has released more than 20 further reports and books. Trustee, Global Agenda Council for Environment and Natural Resource Security.
