DuPont Biomaterials has joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Make Fashion Circular initiative. Launched at the 2017 Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the initiative brings together leaders from across the fashion industry, including brands and NGOs for collaboration among key stakeholders to redesign their operating models and create a new textiles economy.

"Everything we do effects our environment, so we’re committed to developing and marketing solutions that not only improve our everyday lives through high-performance materials, but also reduce environmental impacts," said Renee Henze, global marketing director, DuPont Industrial Biosciences. "Our ultimate goal is to be a part of a circular economy, and by partnering with The Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s important initiatives, we can collaborate with forward-thinking leaders around the world to progress a more sustainable marketplace."

In another step toward promoting sustainability and the bio-economy, DuPont Biomaterials has joined The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Circular Economy 100 (CE100) initiative. The pre-competitive innovation programme brings together corporates, governments and cities, academic institutions, emerging innovators and affiliates in a unique multi-stakeholder platform to learn and collaborate for a circular economy.

As a member of CE100, DuPont Biomaterials will participate in collaborative projects with other members; attend the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Annual Summit and bi-annual workshops; and join an ongoing discussion around promoting a circular economy across businesses and industries.

"The CE100 is designed to explore, develop and act on new ways to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. With a fine balance between collaboration, innovation, and education, the network stimulates organizations like DuPont to achieve faster, greater successes than could be achieved alone. With DuPont joining the CE100, the network gains a wealth of experience in material science, and engineering rigour," said James George, business engagement lead, Ellen Macarthur Foundation.

DuPont Biomaterials is committed to the ongoing conversation about the need for renewable, performance-based materials and continued collaboration within the fashion industry to contribute to circularity. In addition to its participation in Ellen MacArthur Foundation initiatives, DuPont Biomaterials recently announced that the Sorona brand is a new bluesign system partner, and that they have expanded their Kinston, North Carolina, facility for increased production of Sorona polymer.
