Join us in creating the next generation of renewable materials and digital solutions

Here you can explore and get involved with our portfolio of innovations and cooperations with startups, plus our own exploratory innovation initiatives.

As regulation evolves and consumers opt out of plastics and other fossil-based materials, producers, retailers and brand owners are being forced to rethink their own material choices. Phasing out fossil-based materials will not happen overnight or in isolation, which is why we seek partnerships with companies working on material innovations and technologies.
