Sympatex exhibits in the Sustainability Hub at ISPO Munich (11/20/23)
Membrane manufacturer Sympatex will be exhibiting in the Sustainability Hub in Hall A1, Stand 156,
presenting innovations that expand the manufacturer's fiber2fiber range. Together with system partner
Bluesign, Sympatex will be taking part in panel discussions at ISPO. Sympatex dedicates itself to the
topic of design thinking in its own trade fair collection, together with YKK.
Circular economy is the only option for Sympatex. The way to get there: being the best service partner
at all levels. The Sympatex trade fair stand in the Sustainability Hub embodies this clear goal.
An Eco-Design Guide developed by Sympatex will be presented. This will help Sympatex to support its
brand partners in implementing the upcoming EU directives right from the crucial design process.
"My motivation is that we are changing this industry," says Dr. Rüdiger Fox, CEO Sympatex.
"We work for the cause, not for profit. We co-wrote the UNFCCC Fashion Industry Charter for Climate
Action, which everyone now follows. We are proud of this, it motivates us and drives us forward.
Sympatex has the right products for this in its portfolio," adds Fox.
In a recyclable trade fair collection, Sympatex and YKK are demonstrating the importance of ingredient
brands when it comes to the sustainability of a product. At the same time, the company is sharpening
its expertise in design thinking.
"In this collabo collection, we show how important it is to choose the right ingredients such as zippers,
buttons and functional textiles to leave the lowest possible impact on our planet. Mono-material,
physical and emotional durability, multifunctionality, quality, participatory design, synergy effects -
there are numerous criteria that are necessary to establish a circular economy. We deal with these
approaches on a daily basis and are happy to share this important knowledge," says Lisa Polk, Eco
Design & Circular Expert Sympatex.
The topic of sustainability is diverse and multifaceted. Sympatex is involved in three panel discussions.

Sympatex has set itself the goal of creating a circular economy by empowering everyone to make
informed decisions. The panel discussion will show how brands can contribute to a credible industry,
protect consumers from greenwashing and implement green claims appropriately on the brand side.
"Panel discussions provide space for healthy exchange, create transparency within our industry and
guidance for all those who want to be part of the needed change. That's why Sympatex is so happy to
take this opportunity. We want to use all opportunities and solutions to transform our industry into a
better, more circular one," says Kim Scholze CSMO Sympatex.
Sympatex is part of the Sustainability Hub Guided Tour. Every day at 11.00 am, trade fair visitors can be
inspired and get in touch with the brand.
"Our trade fair stand embodies very well how multi-layered Sympatex works on the topic of
sustainability. We are constantly expanding our expertise in the field of eco design and recycling and
optimizing our product portfolio (apparel, footwear, corporate workwear) with regard to the ecological
footprint and market requirements. At the same time, we are working with the right partners to jointly
advance the goal of a circular economy. We will be showcasing all of this at ISPO," says Christine
Pittrich, Graphic Design Sympatex.
