Empowering Circular Entrepreneurship and Innovation for a Sustainable Future

The ICM Falk Foundation develops
strategic partnerships and grants to
support locally-driven, circular-
economy-based innovations

How We Work

Worldwide, 1 person generates between 1 and 4 kilograms of waste per day.
The ever-increasing amount of waste and pollution resulting from our current economic activity is an existence threat to the health of humans and global ecosystems.
CIRCULAR ECONOMY

To deal with the global waste crisis, we need to rethink our current economy. Waste does not need to be the inevitable result of economic prosperity. Transitioning to a circular economy would allow us to do just that.

Upstream Innovation

Prevention is the best medicine. In a circular economy, upstream innovation is about preventing or recirculating waste from the outset rather than managing it after it has already become waste.
