Closing the Loop
CEMBA works together with apparel brands in order to close the loop in their supply chain and improve their environmental performance. The purpose is to shift their operations from linear to a non-linear model and therefore to shift their pre-consumer waste (operational waste) back to the production process and transform it to a valuable resource for producing mattresses for Rohingya.
Every year more than $500 billion value is lost due to clothing underutilisation lack of recycling and lack of transparency in the supply chain of the apparel brands. As a result, companies that are exposed to such risks are also facing high risk to be excluded from the portfolios of private investors, investment groups and pension funds. CEMBA strives to mitigate these risks by closing the loop in the apparel brands and making them as such part of the investors portfolios.
