The Circular Bioeconomy Alliance initiative was established in 2020 by His Majesty King Charles III (formerly His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales).

In September 2023 the Circular Bioeconomy Alliance became a registered charity. It intends to build upon the successes of the initiative bearing the same name which was hosted by the European Forest Institute, and which had become a leading collaborative platform with around fifty members including scientific organisations, corporations, banks and funds, indigenous peoples, NGOs and companies.

The CBA provides funding, expertise, and know how to facilitate projects designed to accelerate the transition to a circular bioeconomy that is climate neutral, inclusive and prospers in harmony with nature.
