ESSEC GLOBAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY CHAIR

ABOUT US


“Shaping the leaders of the economy of tomorrow”


The circular economy is the only tool to reconcile economic growth and sustainable development. With finite resources and changing consumer behavior towards eco-responsible consumption, the circular economy provides a sustainable and profitable solution.


Founded in 2021, the Chair aims to train the future Chief Circular Officers to lead organizations towards a circular economy. Students will be trained through academic courses and projects with its partners - L'Oréal, EssilorLuxottica, and Bouygues. The Chair will also conduct academic research on the circular economy and create an open, global ecosystem consisting of corporates, startups, think tanks, academics, and government agencies.


The future is circular, let us build it together.
