The Foundation’s largest network continues to expand with six new members joining the diverse and dynamic CE100.

CORPORATE MEMBERS

3M is a multinational science-based technology company working across industries ranging from health care, to consumer, transportation, electronics, safety, and industrial. United by a shared ambition, 3M works closely with partners to apply collaborative science to sustain the products, processes, and systems that improve every life. 3M is committed to designing solutions that do more with less material and is looking for ways to reuse and recycle by-products and other waste materials within its supply chains.

Avery Dennison, a global labelling and packaging materials manufacturer, joined the CE100 network to reinforce its circular ambition and ongoing practice of joining forces throughout the supply chain to deliver solutions that make a material difference in the world. Avery Dennison’s ClearIntent Portfolio helps customers and their end-users reduce materials consumption and shrink their environmental footprint. In addition, Avery Dennison is reusing internal textile processing waste to create new yarn products, and works with other companies to recycle liner waste to prevent it from entering landfills.

IHG, one of the world’s leading hotel companies, joined the CE100 network to accelerate its commitment to reduce waste across its global estate of 5,600 hotels. IHG is working towards finding innovations and solutions that make a positive contribution to the communities in which its portfolio of brands operate. The company works together with its owners to consider the entire hotel lifecycle to make sustainable choices and do things differently. IHG recently announced a partnership with Winnow, a company which uses AI-technology to measure and track food waste in hotels and food establishments.

HEINEKEN International, one of the leading global brewers, is already taking steps to close loops. HEINEKEN is working on maximising the recovery, reuse, and recycling of its water, and to treat 100% of its wastewater worldwide. The company aims to further develop and embed circular economy practices by increasing the re-use and recycling of its packaging and raw materials, repurposing and valuing its waste, and redesigning its products in ways that reduce negative impacts for the environment and communities.

Novamont is a world leader in the production of biodegradable and compostable bioplastics and in the development of biochemicals. One of the key players developing circular economy solutions addressing the problems of today’s food system, Novamont is providing compostable materials for the production of packaging, bags, and foodservice by optimising biowaste, collection, and recycling. Already a signatory of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment and the Food initiative, Novamont’s membership with the CE100 network allows it to further increase connections and partnerships with worldwide actors in the bioeconomy and circular economy.

EMERGING INNOVATOR

Nairoby, a sports manufacturing start-up, is now part of the CE100 network after winning the CE100 X DIF Startup Day last year. Nairoby is rethinking the entire construction process of snowboards and skis by developing new technologies which allow for personalisation and recycling. Nairoby engineered a thermoplastic composite which makes the equipment easy to reprocess and repurpose. The challenge now is to redesign the industry's linear model and make the whole sports experience circular.
