Recover™ honored as a thought partner to the United Nations Fashion and Lifestyle Network

Leading materials science company, Recover™, joins the United Nations Fashion and Lifestyle Network as a Thought Partner for 2024, reaffirming its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and its dedication to forging ties across the global fashion and lifestyle industries.

As a producer of premium recycled cotton fiber, and the first in its space to scale its high-value technology globally, Recover™ is an important actor within the supply chain to inspire change. It recently restated its support of the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, and its commitment to taking actions that benefit the wider community was a key driver in the company’s selection as a Thought Partner for 2024.

The UN Fashion and Lifestyle Network, led by the United Nations Office for Partnerships and the Fashion Impact Fund, stands as a catalyst for sustainable development within the fashion and lifestyle sectors. It plays a key role in advancing the SDGs by connecting industry stakeholders, media, governments, and UN entities. Together Recover™and the UN Fashion and Lifestyle Network share a vision of building resilient and traceable supply chains that are needed to achieve circularity.

“Partnering with the UN Fashion and Lifestyle Network is a milestone for Recover™ as I believe that strategic partnerships are completely necessary to drive meaningful change within the fashion industry. At Recover™, we believe that true innovation lies in creating value not just for our business and the industry but for society and the environment as well, and we look forward to contributing to a more sustainable future for fashion.”

Anders Sjöblom, CEO at Recover™

Kerry Bannigan, Co-Founder, United Nations Fashion and Lifestyle Network: “We are delighted to welcome Recover™ as a Thought Partner to the UN Fashion and Lifestyle Network for 2024. Their leadership and innovative approach to circular fashion will significantly contribute to our mission”.
