The certification will also help us broaden our client base and target multinational companies that focus on safety and sustainability”, he adds.
The ECO PASSPORT by OEKO TEX is a definitive independent certification system that is especially designed for manufacturers of process chemicals and chemical compounds. The ECO PASSPORT certifies the safety and sustainability of the entire value chain of manufacturing textiles. During a multistep process, OEKO-TEX analyses whether each individual ingredient in the chemical product meets the statutory requirements and that it is not harmful to human health. Both brands and manufacturers value the ECO PASSPORT as credible proof of sustainable textile and leather production. Once per year, OEKO-TEX updates the banned substances and limit values and expands them to include new scientific findings or statutory requirements.
