Asheen (he/his) is the CEO of Eleven Radius, an industry group for dynamic fashion companies committed to the circular economy. Prior, Asheen spent over a decade in corporate sustainability, serving as the global head of sustainability for the $4B tech company Dassault Systèmes, where he co-authored the aerospace sector guidance to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol Corporate Standard and supported the Sustainable Apparel Coalition’s Higg Product eco-index.

Asheen received his Biologist at the Design Table (BaDT) certification from the Biomimicry Institute in 2007 and has been practicing and teaching biomimicry since. He worked as a Biomimicry Commercialization Consultant in the aerospace industry, and developed and taught the MBA course “Innovation Inspired by Nature”, which received positive press in BusinessWeek and The Economist.

Asheen serves on the boards of Net Impact and the Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) Action Fund. He speaks fewer languages than he’d prefer, runs and hikes less than he should, and drinks too much espresso and not enough bourbon.
