Archroma is celebrating its eighth anniversary. The company began on October 1, 2013 from textile, paper and emulsions businesses acquired from Clariant by SK Capital Partners.

Building on a commitment to developing safer eco-friendlier chemistry, Archroma has become known for sustainable colors and performance, collaborating with brands such as Primark, G-Star, Patagonia, Esprit and many more, it says.

More recently, the Ellen McArthur Foundation selected Archroma’s plant-waste based EarthColors for its online Biodiversity and Circular Economy case study library.

“Such impact cannot be created overnight,” comments Heike van de Kerkhof, CEO. “Just a few years ago sustainability was considered by most industries as a ‘compliance’ topic. We at Archroma have always had a vision that sustainability is the right thing to do, and that it doesn’t have to come at the expense of cost efficiency or performance.”

Archroma says it has become the go-to partner for many brands in fashion, outerwear, packaging or home decoration, looking to integrate sustainable innovations and solutions in their products.

The company started to develop solutions designed to bring innovation and performance, while reducing the impacts on water, energy and other natural resources. The savings are calculated with Archroma’s proprietary ONE WAY Impact Calculator, a tool launched in 2012 and continuously upgraded to simulate and optimize the footprint of application processes, the company says.

“Brands in fashion, food, home decor, or sportwear make ambitious pledges, and they want to honor them. They are therefore eager to understand how they can introduce new, exciting innovations with safer ingredients and a lower impact on resources. That is where we can help, with our eco-advanced ingredients and demonstrated resource-saving solutions. We can help them make a difference,” says van de Kerkhof.
