Trust and transparency are vital to doing business. OEKO-TEX® certifications have been integrated into the sustainable sourcing programs of companies around the world to ensure safer products, responsible chemical use, worker protection and more sustainable production.
Textiles Tested for Harmful Substances
Materials, accessories and finished goods that are certified to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® have been tested for harmful substances in a globabally standardized, independent testing and certification system. The modular system facilitates traceability and cost sharing throughout the supply chain, resulting in products that are safe for human ecology and your reputation.
MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® is a traceable label for all kinds of textiles and leather products, including non-textile/leather accessories. MADE IN GREEN verifies that safety from harmful substances (via STANDARD 100 or LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® certification), sustainable production and socially responsible (via STeP by OEKO-TEX® certification). The unique product IDs let you trace where and how it was produced.
Leather Tested for Harmful Substances
Leather and leather goods that are certified to LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® have been tested for substances that may be harmful to humans. The restricted substance list and test criteria have been specifically tailored to the leather industry.
ECO PASSPORT Impacts Input Chemistry
ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® provides chemical manufacturers with independent proof that their chemicals, colorants and auxiliaries are suitable for the manufacture of textiles (and leather goods) that are safe for human ecology and environmentally friendly production. An ECO PASSPORT certification gives manufacturers access to safer chemicals at the sourcing stage.
STeP = Sustainable Textile (and leather) Production
STeP certification helps production facilities prove they are meeting the growing market requirements for sustainable production - and benchmark their improvements. With STeP, companies lay the groundwork for continuously improving their environmental performance and responsible working conditions, and transparently communicate their progress to stakeholders.
Compliance with Greenpeace DETOX Campaign
The independent DETOX TO ZERO report provides continuous monitoring and independent verification of chemical and wastewater management. Trained auditors verify and evaluate and textile production facilities and wasterwater and sludge is tested in the lab. Data from annual assessments and testing is analyzed for to ensure compliance with the Detox campaign roadmap.
