With less than a decade to deliver on the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals, the transition to the circular economy continues to be one of the most critical drivers for building a more restorative and sustainable future.

Led by Accenture, in partnership with Anglo American, Ecolab and AWS, and in collaboration with UpLink and the World Economic Forum, The Circulars Accelerator connects disruptive circular economy-focused entrepreneurs with industry leaders to scale circular innovation across the ecosystem. The 16 startups that were selected from more than 350 applications for a place in this year’s accelerator will be announced live.
