Certificates & Labels Issued By Oeko-Tex Increases 21%
Certificates and labels issued by the Oeko-Tex Association between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023 rose 21 percent year on year, to 43,000.
The ‘Made in Green’ label recorded the strongest growth of 52 percent, Oeko-Tex said in a press release.
For their two new certifications, Oeko-Tex focused on cooperation with numerous parties along the global supply chain.
Launched in November 2022, Oeko-Tex Responsible Business addresses the increasing global expectations and due diligence requirements.
“The tool and certification supports textile and leather companies in preventing negative effects from their own business operations, supply chains and broader business relationships,” the company added.
While, companies working with Oeko-Tex Organic Cotton benefit from a global network of certified companies to facilitate sourcing of chemicals, materials and business partners – from cultivation to finished product.
