Delivering a circular economy takes cooperation, partnership and networking. Here’s some of the organisations we work with who are on the same journey.

CE Hub logo


The Circular Economy Hub (CE-Hub) brings together academics, industry practitioners, policymakers and civic society stakeholders committed to delivering circular economy research and innovation programmes in a joint and systemic way.


The Interdisciplinary Centre for Circular Chemical Economy (CircularChem) aims to transform the UK chemical industry into a more resource-efficient, productive and higher value system.
Circular Metals


The Interdisciplinary Centre for Circular Metals (CircularMetal) aims to transform the metals industry and make the UK the first country in the world to have fully circular metals system.     


The Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Mineral-based Construction Materials (ICEC-MCM) focuses on improving the way we use materials such as aggregate, cement and glass, in infrastructure.   


The Textiles Circularity Centre (TCC) will turn bio waste (post-consumer textiles, crop residues and household waste) into renewable materials to envision a circular textiles economy for the UK.
Ellen McArthur Foundation

Ellen MacArthur Foundation

At the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, we develop and promote the idea of a circular economy. We work with, and inspire, business, academia, policymakers, and institutions to mobilise systems solutions at scale, globally.

Rare Earth Industry Association

The Rare Earth Industry Association (REIA) is an international non-profit organization representing the global REE industry. Founded in June 2019, under the auspices of EIT Raw Materials Internationalization project GloREIA. The network continues to grow today. REIA has active members worldwide representing all major countries. With such a global context, REIA is well placed to contribute to a better understanding of rare earth element (REE) value chain.
Ames Laboratory Logo

Critical Materials Institute

The Critical Materials Institute is a U.S. DOE Energy Innovation Hub led by Ames Laboratory that seeks to accelerate innovative scientific and technological solutions to develop resilient and secure supply chains for rare-earth metals and other materials critical to the success of clean energy technologies.
Critical Minerals Association Logo

Critical Minerals Association

Britain needs a robust supply chain to deliver its Industrial Strategy and meet the critical mineral needs of our National Economy. The Critical Minerals Association (CMA) will provide a unique platform for companies and individuals to come together and share key insights with the UK Government.
BGS logo

BGS Research

The decarbonisation and resource management challenge area fits within the context of the increased need to decarbonise energy and industry, the need to use resources more optimally, intense global competition for resources and a need to expand the delivery of affordable, sustainable energy across the world .
BGS logo

Critical Raw Materials

Mineral raw materials are fundamental to human existence. ‘If you cannot grow it, you have to mine it.’ All minerals and metals used in manufacturing, including recycled material, have ultimately been mined from the Earth’s crust.

BGS logo

Mineral Resource Security & Flows

The BGS comprehensively monitors mineral production, trade flows and other relevant statistics within the UK, together with associated analysis related to the circular economy (for construction/industrial minerals) and material supply security issues. 

Geological Society Logo

The Geological Society

Geoscience skills and research will play a critical role in delivering national and international decarbonisation targets and net-zero commitments.We are working to understand and raise awareness of the various ways that geoscience will underpin the energy transition, particularly with decision makers and stakeholders outside the field. Here we will collect resources and planned activities in the area of geoscience and decarbonisation.
