The optimistic Brazilian spirit coupled with market conditions very different to Europe, provide a unique and encouraging setting for the first localised network. Changing the existing linear model to one that is regenerative by design offers a path to economic resilience for a country that is going through turbulent times.
Launched in October 2015, the CE100 Brasil is tailored to organisations who have identified opportunities in the Brazilian market. Like other localised networks, the programme operates autonomously but in parallel to Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s global CE100 programme.
The CE100 Brasil enables member organisations to develop understanding, overcome challenges, and capture opportunities arising from the country’s unique characteristics including but not limited to; a rich biodiversity, a large informal sector, and commodity export economy. In common with the global programme, CE100 Brasil aims to provide research and insights, capacity building tools, networking, and collaboration opportunities to support organisations on every step of their circular economy journey.
