Clare Ollerenshaw

Clare Ollerenshaw, as the Circular Economy Manager at the London Waste and Recycling Board,pioneered the concept of circular economy with a wide range of stakeholders, developing it from a new idea to a key strategic objective for London. She has worked with politicians and senior stakeholders at every level from both business and the public sector to co-create city-wide policy, and has built a number of lasting partnerships which have yielded new insights, business model pilots and progress in the way that circular economy can be delivered collaboratively in a city. Clare produced the first ever route map for London to guide the city’s move to a more circular economy, and led the organisation in what we suspect was the world’s first circular economy week in June 2018. Since April 2019, Clare has been working as a freelance circular economy consultant.
