Presentation Area next to the PERFORMANCE FORUM

As inspiring as this concept might be, it is just part of the truth. To allow the benefits of biodegradability to really kick in, especially for apparel and its packaging, we have to know about the rest of the picture. In this presentation, we have a look on how to decide, when biodegradability should be part of a sustainability concept.
