Sympatex Technologies recently received the international B-Corp quality seal for above-average corporate management with a comprehensive approach and a social interest that extends outside the company itself. Sympatex is one of the first German companies in the textile industry to receive the seal, which rewards corporate concepts that, more than just seek profit, commit to transparency, environmental protection and social responsibility. The U.S. agency B-Lab certifies companies after a detailed audit. The publicly announced goal of Sympatex is to achieve not only economic success but also a significant positive effect on the common good as well as on the environment. More than 2,000 companies from 130 sectors and 50 countries have received the B-Corp quality seal in the past.
