We don't safe the world - but it's a start: Our Sustainability Pledge

PERFORMANCE DAYS believes that particularly the sportswear industry plays an important role in preserving the planet and protecting the outdoors which we design our products for.

For us this role consists in the following main actions: Supporting development of sustainable materials, setting sustainability standards, educating the entire supply chain and providing a more sustainable event for the industry.

Together, we can make change happen!

The Climate Quiz, a quick and playful overview of the more important interrelationships of the various global climate events and their impact variables, provides compact knowledge of statistics, data and facts and other points of reference in terms of global climate issues.

Expert Talks

PERFORMANCE DAYS offers free Expert Talks about sustainable topics. They are accessible live at the event and also online.

The target audience includes every member of the supply chain to improve communication and transparency.

Annual Sustainable Focus Topic

Each fair is dedicated to a specific focus topic, in order to inform about its state of the art, new developments and materials in relation to sustainability and to give valuable outlooks for the future.

Together with Sportsfashion by SAZ, PERFORMANCE DAYS is hosting the annual sustain & innovate conference.

Leading industry experts are discussing the opportunities and challenges of a sustainable functional textile world.
