Trust and transparency are vital for doing business. ECO PASSPORT, STeP, STANDARD 100 and LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® certifications have been integrated into the sustainable sourcing programs of companies around the world to ensure responsible chemical use and environmentally friendly and socially responsible production conditions.
Materials, accessories and finished goods that are certified to STANDARD 100 and LEATHER STANDARD 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.
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 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.
