The whole world is talking about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). But how do outdoor companies really operate sustainably and socially? OutDoor by ISPO from the 30th of June to the 3rd of July will dedicate a separate Focus Area to this question with the CSR Hub in Hall B6.
In the CSR Hub, CSR experts provide insights into the industry's latest sustainability projects and products - curated with the long-standing partners of Brands for Good and GreenroomVoice.
Every morning at 11 a.m., a guided tour will begin at the CSR Hub, presenting products, materials and projects relating to biodegradability and bio-based materials.
The following companies and organizations will be exhibiting on the subject of bio-synthetics:
- Fluid Solids
- Beyond Surface Technologies
- Light My Fire
- Textile Exchange
The following companies and organizations will be exhibiting on the subject of natural fibers:
- American Wool
- Südwolle Group
- Royal Robbins
Furthermore, Adidas will present its Adidas X Parley collection. Each part of this fashion line is based on recycled plastic waste collected from beaches and coastal areas. With this project Adidas and Parley draw attention to the plastic waste pollution of the oceans.
Other highlights include a presentation of the Swedish brand Icebug, the world's first outdoor shoe manufacturer to operate climate-friendly, that will pass on its know-how.
A speaker from the European Outdoor Group (EOG) will talk about disposable plastics, Hohenstein will illuminate biodegradation and the German Hiking Association (Deutscher Wanderverband) will explain how outdoor sports and environmental protection can be reconciled.
The North Face also participates with two presentations and shares its know-how on sustainability:
Monday 1-1.45p.m.: Increasing the value of sustainable products - Experiences of our journey so far
Tuesday, 12p.m-1p.m.: Leading through innovation and sustainability: crossing boundaries while reducing our impact
