FRANCE – Carbios, a French recycling innovator has joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s network for businesses, policymakers, educational institutions and charities dedicated to pioneering a circular economy.

The Network aligns stakeholders from across the industry and supports their ambitions of promoting circularity and sustainability within their operations.

Carbios shares the Foundation’s commitment to accelerate the transition to a circular economy, especially in the areas of plastics and fashion.

Katie Attrill, Network Manager at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation said: “Carbios is a highly respected organization with the ability to deliver impact and a high level of organizational buy-in.

“We welcome Carbios as a Network Member and look forward to supporting the company on its circular economy journey.”

By joining the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Network, Carbios will connect with other leaders within the Foundation’s leading circular economy network of businesses, policymakers, academia, innovators, and thought leaders worldwide.

“Becoming a member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Network is an important step for Carbios’ development, and an obvious one given our shared commitment to a circular economy,” said Emmanuel Ladent, Chief Executive Officer of Carbios.

“With access to ideas, thought leaders and new collaborators, we’re excited to leverage the Foundation’s network of experts to support market access for our innovative solutions for reducing plastic pollution.”

Through ambitious collaborative projects, plastics and fashion are two topic areas for the Foundation and are also at the heart of Carbios’ activities.

Providing actionable solutions to support brands’ ambitious commitments to sustainable packaging and textile industries, Carbios has founded two 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

The other one was 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 2022.

In 2019, Carbios’ biorecycling and biodegradable solutions were among the first innovations to be labeled “Efficient Solution” by the Solar Impulse Foundation.
