Unlocking Planet-Positive Supply Chains through Carbon-Negative Cellulosic Textiles

The future of Earth depends on us reimagining global industry and methods of production. Rubi is building a cell-free bio-production platform to turn CO2 into humanity’s most important materials. Our vision is a world where human prosperity is planet-positive, and supply chains are symbiotic with the planet. The first chapter of our story focuses on cellulosic textiles for the fashion industry — the world’s 3rd-most CO2-polluting supply chain. • The problem: Why addressing supply chains’ carbon footprint is imperative in climate mitigation. • How we’ll get there: How to reinvent supply chains, through innovative technology, to create a climate-positive future. • Obstacles to overcome: Education around climate mitigation, the impact of supply chains on various industries, etc.

From the food on our shelves to the newspapers on our front doors, almost every aspect of manufacturing is hurtling us toward environmental disaster. According to the World Economic Forum, global production sectors are responsible for one-fifth of carbon emissions, consuming 54% of the world’s energy sources. Manufacturing processes urgently need affordable and scalable solutions rooted in cutting-edge science and technology to reinvent the way it operates. Rubi exists to ensure the planetary future by restoring Earth’s ecological balance with reimagined supply chains that are symbiotic with the planet – starting with fashion, the third most CO2-polluting supply chain on the planet. In this presentation, Jenna Eason, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Rubi, will discuss how supply chains are the missing link for real, lasting positive change.
