DuPont partners with Ellen MacArthur Foundation on circular economy


In Delaware, DuPont Biomaterials has joined an Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s innovation program aimed at accelerating the transition to a circular economy.

The Circular Economy initiative, or CE100, is a pre-competitive innovation program 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. DuPont Biomaterials joins a leading group of global companies participating in CE100.

DuPont Biomaterials has also 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, cities and NGOs to drive collaboration among key stakeholders to radically redesign their operating models and create a new textiles economy in line with the principles of the circular economy. The overarching goal is to “ensure clothes are developed with safe and renewable materials, new business models increase their use, and old clothes are transformed into new.”
