The future of our planet will be decided at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26).
Hosted in the UK, we're just one of a handful of British brands chosen to be at the heart of it.
At COP26 we'll throw a spotlight on the connection between human and planetary health. The environment and economics are intertwined.
Being re-united with the earth is the only sustainable path forward to human and planetary wellbeing.
Vivo's goal is to regenerate and restore - in the way we do business - and in the products we create.
THE SYSTEM – FEET FIRST
Humans are more disconnected from nature than at any other point in our history.
The shoe industry collectively creates 22 billion shoes every year, all churned out of toxic supply chains.
Incredibly, many end up in landfill having seen little wear.
At COP26 we’ll share our vision of regenerative footwear.
It’s a plan that re-imagines manufacturing, with products created locally, for individuals – not mass markets.
Optimised for human health – optimised for the planet.
We call it: VIVOBIOME
Together with our partner Innovation 4.4, we are launching the Oceans Prize, seeking alternatives to oil-based plastics. The prize is aimed at innovators working on non-toxic biosynthetic materials for use in 3D printing.
