The Green Button is a government seal for sustainably produced textiles. It sets binding requirements to protect people and the environment in the production of textiles. For this seal, both the product and the company are inspected.
Companies wishing to certify their products with the Green Button must comply with demanding criteria forcorporate due diligence processes as well as requirements for products and production.
The state sets the criteria and conditions for the Green Button. Independent testing bodies, such as Hohenstein, monitor compliance with the criteria.
As a certification body approved by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Hohenstein is authorized to audit companies and test products for compliance with the Green Button criteria.
