Sympatex to show new eco-friendly textiles at ISPO 2017
Jan '17
Sympatex Technologies, developers of high-tech functional materials in clothing, footwear, accessories, and technical fields of applications, is set to present for the first time an integral eco-clustering of its entire laminate portfolio at the ISPO Munich expo, the international sports expo to be held from February 5 to 8, 2017, in hall A1 booth 418.

The ecological alternative among functional textile specialists will offer in the future its portfolio in five dedicated laminate categories, focusing on sustainable aspects. These range from “10% Sympathy Inside” for the minimum level of sustainability to “100% Sympathy Inside” for the best ecological category that meets all the requirements for a closed apparel loop.

The criteria ranges from the sustainable use of raw materials, consumed energy and water up to avoiding harmful climate gases and the banning of chemical toxins. They also include the ability of recycling valuable material. The minimal entry threshold for future Sympatex products is based on the criteria of the “Partnership for Sustainable Textiles” where Sympatex has been an active member company since its founding.

Sympatex will also offer its customers to show the respective eco-category on a label on their garments and to provide end customers with detailed information about the sustainability criteria via a QR code that they can access directly in the store by using their smartphones – without additional costs.

While the Sympatex membrane will be completely climate neutral from 2017 onwards, the functional specialist will now also encourage its customers to switch to entirely climate-neutral clothing: With the help of the Sympatex eco-calculator, the exact CO2 emission of every meter of textile can be determined as part of the ecological footprint.

Sympatex customers can compensate the unavoidable CO2 emissions by supporting certified climate protection projects. The compensation considers the entire process chain from the raw materials production to the delivery to the customers (“cradle to customer gate”). Clients will receive a certificate that can be linked to the label of the finished product via a QR code. Thus, the transparency for the consumer is guaranteed. (GK)
