From the press release, June 13th, 2020:

“Today, CEOs of some of the world’s biggest companies, policymakers, philanthropists, academics, and other influential individuals have reaffirmed their commitment to building a circular economy. Together we can build an economy that is distributed, diverse, and inclusive – Dame Ellen MacArthur – Founder, Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

As the world faces unprecedented challenges, the signatories have stated that they are more committed than ever to accelerating the transition to a circular economy — creating solutions for plastics, fashion, food, finance, and beyond that combine economic opportunity with benefits to wider society and the environment.

The statement further calls on businesses and governments around the world to join the journey towards a circular economy — to invest in circular economy solutions and raise the ambition level of circular economy targets.”
