At Modern Meadow, we envision a future where consumer products don’t rely on unsustainable inputs and supply chains that are petrochemical- or animal-based. We are committed to leading that shift at scale without sacrificing performance. We are dedicated to showing the world the performance potential of bio-based materials and the collaborative potential of a sustainable bioeconomy.
For real supply-chain level change to occur, we need options that are high performance, easily adoptable, and sustainable. These three pillars guide our every action, from the products we make today to the technologies we are developing for the future.
We pride ourselves on leveraging eco-design tools such as our LCA screening approach aligned with R&D timelines to identify hotspots and prioritize our development. Our tools empower us to reduce impacts by creating decision-based guidelines to provide real-time guidance for our R&D teams, and ensure that cross-functional expertise reaches every layer of the innovation lifecycle to develop next-generation materials.
Our Sustainability Principles help us stay focused on the most critical environmental areas and challenge us to design our products and systems in the most sustainable manner.
We recognize the need to transition away from both animal-derived and fossil-derived materials and chemicals that are co-produced along the petrochemical supply chain. We are committed to disrupting these supply chains and offering new alternatives without compromising performance.
We strive to source inputs that support the growth of a sustainable bioeconomy without adding pressure to the global agricultural systems already in place. This includes efforts to minimize agricultural land use, freshwater consumption, and eutrophication from waste emissions.
We support development of circular systems that reduce depletion of raw materials, and design for a responsible end-of-life.
Aim high and commit. We reach for ambitious goals and create a path to achieve them.
We embrace diverse perspectives, even when it is uncomfortable. Every voice matters; every action has impact.
Design-build-test-learn-repeat. Be fearless—every discovery takes us forward. Fail fast, learn faster.
The bigger the challenge, the harder we play. This is our passion, and why it’s easy for us to have fun with it.
We are committed to identifying and engaging with companies who share our vision for sustainability & impact across the supply chain. By developing technologies that compliment other leading edge sustainable technologies, we hope to facilitate ecosystem relationships, build coalitions, and integrate technologies to support the growth of new, sustainable solutions.
