Powering Innovation 
for a Circular Future

our philanthropic principles

Pushing circularity and upstream innovation further for sustained, local, socio-economic impact
Local Innovation
We believe that local-centric solutions are the key to a sustainable change. By embracing innovation from different thought-leaders at the local level, we are able to understand context-based value chains, and apply that to the root causes of inefficiencies to create sustainable, systemic change.
Informed Decision-making
We remain transparent and accountable for the issues we aim to solve, relying on data to drive all decision-making. This allows us to test hypotheses and monitor progress at a system level, course-correcting where needed.
Flexible Collaboration
We incorporate the input of multiple stakeholders from a variety of sectors to form learning loops which allow us to consistently evaluate and nimbly pivot our strategies in today's dynamic environment.
