Do you wish to promote your company’s progress in the Circular Economy and highlight its capability for successful collaboration?

Be part of the ECR Community Review of Global Circular Economy Practices in the Retail & CPG Sector

 The aim of the Review is to highlight global Circular Economy case studies and emerging practices in the Retail and CPG sector.  We are seeking case studies that demonstrate circularity across a range of topics including packaging, food waste, waste management innovation, repairability, secondary raw materials & resource efficiency.

We recognise that the circular economy is a relatively new area, so we are interested in receiving submissions that demonstrate:

  • A circular or closed loop system, where several companies are working together to achieve circularity.
  • Projects that are on a journey – your project may not have achieved full circularity yet, but you may have lots of interesting insights and learnings from your journey to date.
  • Circular projects that are using data and tools to make informed decisions.


We believe ECR Community is well placed to publish and disseminate a Review of global circular economy case studies. It represents ECR Nationals in 25 countries throughout the world, extensively in Europe and recently in China, Colombia, Mexico and Kazakhstan amongst others.  This will allow for inclusion of case studies throughout the world and global circulation of the final review. It should be a valuable source of insight & learning and assist in developing the skillset of practitioners globally within our sector.

Next Steps:

  • Companies interested in being included in this Review should complete this short application by May 21st: Click Here
