Circle Economics was established in 2018 to facilitate transitions to a sustainable and circular economy. It was founded by Marca Hagenstad, an economist with 20+ years of experience consulting to public, private and nonprofit sectors. She has measured environmental, economic and social impacts and progress in 18 industries ranging from manufacturing to utilities. Her training by the Sustainability Consortium, created to transform the consumer-goods industry, enables her to advise clients on responding to the Sustainability Index. She started Circle Economics to help clients go beyond compliance, turning data into insights to guide business strategy.
