An enterprise model with integral responsibility for society and environment: Sympatex Technologies is B-Corp certified as of now (11/13/18)
Being awarded the internationally renowned B-Corp certification for exemplary corporate
governance in the interest of society, the Munich-based functional textile specialist commits itself to
public interest and environmental protection as its official corporate goals.
Munich / Unterföhring, 13 November 2018 – As one of the first German companies of the textile
industry, Sympatex Technologies GmbH is awarded the internationally renowned hallmark for
above-average corporate governance in the holistic interest of society beyond corporate borders.
B-Corp stands for a corporate concept which does not only act solely on the maxim of profit
maximization, but equally commits itself to transparency, environmental protection as well as social
responsibility. In the Outdoor Industry, Patagonia has been one of the best-known members of this
movement for years.
After a thorough, multi-level audit process conducted by the US agency B-Lab, Sympatex
Technologies has now been officially certified as a B-Corp. The articles of association have already
been changed in form, obliging Sympatex not only to take the wellbeing of its shareholder and
customers, but of all stakeholders, such as its employees, the environment as well as society equally
into account when making decisions. Thus, the company’s explicit goal is that its business both
achieves economic success as well as a significant positive effect on the common good as well as on
“Being an official member and part of the worldwide growing B-Corp community is not only a great
honour for us. In times of increasing calls for „Me first“, we also want to send a signal that we as a
commercial enterprise need to recognize our responsibility for the overall social and ecological
system and must not abuse it unilaterally for our own interests“, explains Dr. Rüdiger Fox, CEO of
Sympatex Technologies. “However, we are only at the beginning of this journey, since we will
continue to further enhance our commitment, especially in the area of sustainability in the textile
industry. The certification shows us where we stand right now and where further proactive action is
still helpful in order to fulfil our role in society at large”, adds Fox.
