EKOKLEAN ON DEMAND
Founder & Chairwoman
Chrystèle Gimaret founded Artupox in 2005, since renamed EKOKLEAN, a 100% purpose native company. Even before the notions of sustainable development, CSR and Business for Good became a part of the public debate, she already had a strong vision of the need for companies to have a positive environmental and social impact. Since the creation of the company, Chrystèle Gimaret has regularly received awards for being ahead of the game in terms of innovation and societal commitment. In 2019, she received the Bold Women Award Veuve Cliquot (LVMH Group) - Businesswoman Award, for her audacity and her ability to reinvent the codes of the cleaning industry. Today, she is identified by most of the major corporate players (leaders of the French Stock Market) as a leader in the industry. Chrystèle Gimaret wants to change the way people look at cleaning jobs and make the invisible visible. She is resolutely committed to guarantee access to decent employment, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. Trained as a teacher-researcher in mathematics, she regularly teaches at HEC Entrepreneurs, sits on juries at Sciences Po and is involved in mentoring for women entrepreneurs.
