The Programme

The Circular Economy 100 is a pre-competitive innovation programme established to enable organisations to develop new opportunities and realise their circular economy ambitions faster. It brings together corporates, governments and cities, academic institutions, emerging innovators and affiliates in a unique multi-stakeholder platform. Specially developed programme elements help members learn, build capacity, network, and collaborate with key organisations around the circular economy.

CE100 Acceleration Workshop

Two-day acceleration workshops held twice a year focus on promoting cross-company and cross-sector collaboration. Members create Co.Projects - collaborative ventures with the objective of enabling their transition towards a circular economy. In addition to collaboration, the acceleration workshops provide opportunities for members to learn about the circular economy through plenary sessions and forum sessions.

Collaborative projects (Co.Projects)

Co.Projects are opportunities for formal collaboration between CE100 members. Co.Projects are driven by members, for members, with a focus either on research initiatives or pilots. Co.Projects leverage the CE100 network with the aim of overcoming challenges, and exploring opportunities, faced by organisations making the transition to a circular economy that they may otherwise not be able to address in isolation.

Currently CE100 members are working on Co.Projects in the areas of:

  • Built environment
  • Consumer attitudes
  • EEE – Electronic and Electrical Equipment
  • FACT – Fabrics, Apparels, Carpet, Textile
  • Finance
  • FMCG – Fast Moving Consumer Goods
