He was one of the speakers at the eighth edition of the Berlin Fashion Summit, which had regenerative fashion as its main theme.

Mr Schneider spoke about the carbon impact and consequences of brands replacing leather with synthetic alternatives and also shared his insight on the commitment and resilience required to develop new regenerative materials as alternatives to plastic.

Materials ISA has developed include HyphaLite, which is 100% biobased, crafted from natural latex and regenerated cellulose fibres.
