CRNI is delighted to have been selected in the CIWM list of Circular Economy pioneers.

Published by CIWM, Circular Online is a daily news and insights resource for sustainability professionals working in resources and waste. A recent feature – ‘Circular pioneers | innovative start-ups driving the circular economy‘ – included a list of innovative organisations, which are seen to be to the fore in driving the circular economy.

Claire Downey, executive at CRNI, said: “We’re a network that supports social enterprises working to prevent waste and promote reuse, repair and recycling. In practice, we organise events, provide networking and business opportunities, undertake research, and act as an advocate for our members.”

Also included in the CIWM list was The Rediscovery Centre. “We are a circular economy-focused visitor and education centre, housing four social enterprises – Rediscover Furniture, Rediscover Fashion, Rediscover Cycling and Rediscover Paint,” said Sarah Miller, chief executive. “In a sense, these are demonstration projects, showing the possibilities of the circular economy through reuse and redesign.
