After you apply

We will review the registration and confirm whether your organisation is accepted as part of the community. We aim to get back to you within 2 weeks, but this may increase at peak times.

Terms and condition

You can review the terms of registration for becoming part of the community here.

If you have applied/plan to apply as a Startup, here are the terms of registration.

Referencing the Foundation

Organisations accepted as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation community are not permitted to use the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s logo, without exception. Logo use is reserved only for contracted Members, Partners, and Strategic Partners. For more information on how approved community organisations can refer to their association to the Foundation, refer to the terms of registration.

Becoming a Member, Partner or Strategic Partner

Your organisation’s application to join the community gives us all the information we need to know. If we think your organisation could be relevant for Membership or Partnership, our Network team will be in touch to discuss the opportunity. Please note, Membership, Partnership, and Strategic Partnership require one to one support from our team, and as such we are very limited on space.
