Person

Founder of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and member of the Club of Rome. Ellen MacArthur made yachting history in 2005, when she became the fastest solo sailor to circumnavigate the globe, and remains the UK’s most successful offshore racer ever.

Circular economy

Having become acutely aware of the finite nature of the resources our linear economy relies upon, she stepped away from professional sailing in 2009 to launch the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, which works in the fields of education, business and analysis to accelerate the transition to a restorative and regenerative circular economy.
