As one of Sweden’s most experienced circular economy consultants, Mats works with companies to drive a transformation to a circular economy model. With a background at McKinsey & Company, he worked with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation 2014-2018 as lead on multiple circular economy projects, notably in the New Plastics Economy.
