OEKO-TEX certification relates to testing the safety of raw materials as they are being processed and manufactured to make the actual textile products.
Over the last few years, SNF has implemented numerous measures in the field of sustainable development, particularly regarding environmental, social, and economic issues (e.g. energy, carbon, sustainable development, and social reports).
For this purpose, SNF is certified or compliant with the numerous existing textile certifications:
OEKO TEX® 100
GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD
This standard stipulates requirements throughout the supply chain for both ecological and labor conditions in textile and apparel manufacturing using organically produced raw materials.
REACH is a regulation of the European Union adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
Bluesign is an international sustainability standard that traces the textile path along the manufacturing process to eliminate the use of harmful substances at each stage of the production chain to ensure that textile products are healthy, safe, and free of harmful substances.
Clear To Wear is a standard developed by Inditex around three axes: The identification of hazards in the entire manufacturing chain; the substitution of the substances included in the Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL); and the transparency of these processes.
ZERO DISCHARGE OF HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS
The ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (ZDHC MRSL) is a list of chemical substances banned from intentional use in facilities processing textile materials, leather, adhesives and trim parts in textiles, apparel, and footwear.
CRADLE TO CRADLE
Cradle to Cradle Certification is a global standard of scoring brands for their commitment to the circular economy – the reduction of waste and hazardous chemicals, more efficient uses of resources and the reuse of materials, energy efficiency, and social responsibility.
NORDIC SWAN ECOLABEL
