With a shared commitment to accelerate the transition to a circular economy, Carbios has become a member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Network. The work of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Cowes/UK, in fashion will support Carbios’ contribution in making the textile industry more circular.
By joining the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Network, Carbios SA, Clermont-Ferrand/France, a leader in the development and industrialization of biological technologies to reinvent the life cycle of plastics and textiles, will connect with other leaders within the foundation’s leading circular economy network of businesses, policymakers, academia, innovators, and thought leaders worldwide.
Carbios fully adheres to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s vision for a circular economy for plastic. Its innovative bio-recycling and biodegradation technologies already match the actions defined by the foundation:
1. Eliminate all problematic and unnecessary plastic items.
2. Innovate to ensure that the plastics we do need are reusable, recyclable, or compostable.
3. Circulate all the plastic items we use to keep them in the economy and out of the environment.
Through collaborative projects, plastics and fashion are 2 topic areas for the foundation and are also at the heart of Carbios’ activities. Providing actionable solutions to support brands’ ambitious commitments for sustainable packaging and textile industries, Carbios has founded s consortiums: one in the packaging industry established with L’Oréal in 2019, which has since been joined by Nestlé Waters, PepsiCo and Suntory Beverage & Food Europe; another created in 2022 in the textile industry with apparel and fashion brands On, Patagonia, PUMA, PVH Corp. and Salomon. Together, the consortium members develop solutions promoting the recyclability and circularity of their products.
Carbios recently underscored its commitment to circularity and environmental responsibilities by publishing its first Sustainability Report at the end of 20222. In 2019, Carbios’ bio-recycling and biodegradable solutions were among the first innovations to be labelled “Efficient Solution” by the Solar Impulse Foundation.
