JEPLAN, INC. (Representative Director, President, and Chief Executive Officer: Masaki Takao; hereinafter "JEPLAN") announces that it has joined the "Toyota City Connected Society Demonstration Promotion Council" (hereinafter "the Council"), which is promoted by Toyota City, Aichi prefecture in support of its aims and objectives. By joining the Council, JEPLAN aims to build a demonstration model that will lead to the formation of a more sustainable society by utilizing "BRING UNIFORM™".

Through "BRING UNIFORM™," JEPLAN cooperated with Toyota City in a demonstration project*1 to collect, sort, and recycle business uniforms used by companies in the city according to their materials. In addition, JEPLAN has been promoting resource recycling efforts in cooperation with Toyota City, such as participating in a webinar held by the city to educate people about clothing recycling and the "AND ART LAND" event to communicate the importance of decarbonization toward the realization of a zero-carbon city.

BRING UNIFORM™" recycles collected uniforms according to their materials. Among them, uniforms made of 100% polyester are recycled into 100% fiber-derived recycled polyester resin using JEPLAN's proprietary PET chemical recycling technology to be reborn as new clothing and other products. By joining the council and promoting collaboration with member companies and organizations using the BRING UNIFORM™, JEPLAN aims to build a demonstration model that will lead to the formation of a recycling-oriented society by working as a region to promote resource recycling that transcends industry and business categories.

The JEPLAN Group will continue to promote collaboration with domestic and overseas partners to realize its corporate philosophy of "BRINGing everyone into circular economy," and the entire group will work together to drive the circular economy.
