Joining forces with other change makers
We believe that the transition to a more circular economy can only be achieved through ambitious commitments, active collaboration, and dialog with our value chains. In addition to our EcoCircle initiative, Clariant collaborates in joint efforts with other changemakers.
As a member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Clariant is actively involved in the Circular Economy program and is participating in several working groups fostering circularity alongside other industry leaders.
We are also part of the World Economic Forum’s Low Carbon Emitting Technologies Initiative, which aims to accelerate the development of low carbon emitting technologies for chemical production by also increasing circularity in the plastics value chain and fostering a sustainable bioeconomy.
Clariant is a founding member of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW). Over 50 member companies and supporters comprised of businesses from different sectors have joined the Alliance and together they are committed to funding and incubating projects and programs that will prevent leakage by helping to recover and create value from plastic waste.
We are part of the Circular Plastics Alliance founded in 2019 by the European Commission. This alliance brings together more than 100 committed partners from across the value chain – including plastic manufacturers and processors, large retailers, waste management organizations and recycling companies.
Clariant is also involved in the Polyolefins Circular Economy Platform (PCEP), contributing to the polyolefin industry’s voluntary commitments to increase the recyclability of polyolefin packaging and significantly increase the volume of recycled post-consumer polyolefin content that is used in European products.
And we are the drivers behind special industry initiatives such as Process4Sustainability at the Industriepark Frankfurt Höchst in Germany, which is bringing together chemical-pharmaceutical industry stakeholders with the goal to improve processes and develop circular technologies.
