Building on the groundbreaking work of the City of Cleveland’s Climate Action Plan, Circular Cleveland is a joint initiative of Cleveland Neighborhood Progress and the City of Cleveland with community partner, Neighborhood Connections.

Circular Cleveland collaborates with community organizations, local colleges and universities, residents, business, philanthropy, and a network of cities. Together, these partners have identified Cleveland’s strengths and challenges to transition to a circular economy, and defined a circle of relationships that will empower this transition to take place.

Circular Cleveland invites all—civic, nonprofit, and industry leaders, and residents—to work together to design a circular future that eliminates the waste, pollution and inequity of the current economy.

Circular Cleveland is funded by a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant that has enabled Cleveland to join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Network of Circular Cities.
