Carbios publishes the results of the Special General Meeting and the Annual and Extraordinary General Meeting of 22 June 2023
Carbios has written its Purpose into its statutes, as permitted by the PACTE Act of 2019, following the vote at the Annual General Meeting held on 22 June 2023, namely “to generate a positive and significant social, societal and environmental impact in the conduct of its activities”. This Purpose underpins Carbios’ business, which provides solutions to the environmental emergency of tackling plastic pollution.
Emmanuel Ladent, CEO of Carbios: “Since its inception, Carbios has always defined itself by the reason behind its activities: fighting plastic pollution. It is the very genesis of the company. By including this Purpose in our company statutes, at the very core of our activities, we strengthen our commitment to protect the planet and improve the life of those who share it.”
“Since Carbios’ employees embody its Purpose every day, it was obvious that they should all take part in this video,” continues Emmanuel Ladent.
After publishing its first Sustainability Report in 2022, Carbios established a dedicated CSR role in 2023. A CSR Committee chaired by Amandine De Souza and composed of Board members and General Management will now take into account the social and environmental impact of its decisions in the governance process.
An internal steering committee will ensure the operational implementation of the associated actions.
A Purpose to address an environmental emergency
« Let’s free the oceans and land from further waste!
This can only be achieved when all the plastic and textiles already in-use are effectively reduced, reused and recycled.
This is the reason we rally forces and catalyze unprecedented expertise-based partnerships to innovate in biorecycling and biodegradation technologies.
It’s why, every day, we develop unique enzymes that make our core technologies thrive.
And why, every day, this teamwork makes the circularity of plastic and textiles possible at scale.
At Carbios, we are renowned scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs.
Nature is our inspiration. »
