Circular Economy of Food Accelerator

Emma works on all things circular economy and food at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, serving as the project Lead on the Food initiative. Emma and her team bring together major industry players from across the food value chain, along with city municipalities, to take a systemic approach to unlocking the positive potential of the food system. She grew up in Toronto, Canada, and gained experiences in business management consulting, environmental conservation, designing cities for people, organic farming, and social entrepreneurship prior to joining the Foundation. Apart from food, Emma’s loves include: solo adventures, creating art, and exploring her home base of the Isle of Wight, England.
