“At Ananas Anam, creating positive impact motivates us in the work we do every day. We are constantly driven to lower our environmental impact and to support our industry partners with their efforts to do the same. Seeing all our efforts collected in the Impact Report is a great moment to reflect on how far we have come over the past year and look ahead to our next steps. As we continue the journey with the team, our partners and clients, I warmly welcome you to read our 2023 Impact Report.”

Silvia Bernardini, CEO, Ananas Anam

Our fourth Impact Report as a certified B-Corporation follows an exciting year at Ananas Anam which included many wonderful collaborations and partnerships for both Piñatex® and Piñayarn®, along with the launch of our premium traceable pineapple leaf fibre, Anam PALF®.

Introducing Anam PALF®: traceable pineapple leaf fibre

2023 marked the launch of Anam PALF® pineapple leaf fibre to the textile market. Anam PALF® is the key ingredient in Piñatex® and Piñayarn®, creating positive impact as a traceable fibre made from agricultural waste. With the launch of Anam PALF® onto the textile market, we look forward to seeing collaborations that will expand the positive social and environmental impact of Anam PALF®.

2023 also saw significant milestones for the plant-based textile community, with the first ever plant-based shoe to walk the Oscars red carpet, made with Piñatex® in a collaboration between luxury vegan fashion brand Willa Phoenix and Vegan Fashion Week. Following the commercial launch of Piñayarn® in early 2023, we began to see results of the first collaborations using Piñayarn®, including Calvin Klein’s ‘Sustainable Knit Trainer’ featuring their first ever shoe uppers knit with pineapple leaf fibre.

Increasing our B-Corp Score

As a certified B-Corp, we are continuously striving to improve our impact on people and planet. In 2023 we were delighted to see this recognised with an increase in our B-Corp score to 88.5 points; a rise of 8 points since our last assessment which reflects our commitment to improving the ways we work at Ananas Anam and with our partners, while growing as a company.

In all we do, we act to heal the rift between people and planet, and collaboration is essential for achieving this mission. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the global Ananas Anam team, our partners, clients, and the wider community for their continued support, which has enabled us to amplify our positive impact even more this year.
