Today the Foundation welcomes six new Emerging Innovators to its Circular Economy (CE100) programme.

Today, Black Bear Carbon, CustoMem, Grover, Kabadiwalla Connect, Topolytics and Worn Again, will join other Emerging Innovators as well as corporates, governments and cities, academic institutions and affiliates in the programme.
