Circular Economy Solutions (C-ECO), which runs the CoremanNet automotive spare parts core return service, has joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s CE100 programme. The firm is the third from Germany to be admitted to the 120-strong network of companies whose aim is to promote the virtues of the circular economy. C-ECO sees the move as a “great opportunity” to get in contact with companies outside of their own market. Announcing its CE100 membership, the company stated that it was hoping “to find new partners, co-operations and new projects in new market segments”. C-ECO was founded in February 2016 as a spin-off from Robert Bosch, with an HQ in Göttingen and sites in Karlsruhe, Germany and Chicago, US. The venture’s expertise in reverse logistics gives it the credentials to join CE100, which was founded in 2010 and consists of corporate members, governments, city authorities, academic institutions and “emerging innovators”. Members include Apple, Unilever and Renault France.
