This framework is aimed at committed changemakers and impact entrepreneurs who understand that business as usual is not an option, and who want to be part of the solution. 

As we consume some 1.76x the planet’s ability to regenerate her biocapacity every year, the need to transition from a take-make-waste economy to a circular closed loop system has never been more urgent. 

Fortunately, there are many, many entrepreneurs all over the world, disrupting linear business models, designing waste out of the system, pioneering with new materials and processes, and working tirelessly to bring their innovations to market, and reinventing entire systems as they go.
