Switzerland: Oeko-Tex releases Annual Report for 2022/2023

Switzerland-based standards organisation Oeko-Tex has announced its results for 2022/2023, issuing more than 43,000 certificates and labels, writes ILM.

Oeko-Tex also noted its focus on partnerships with multi-stakeholder initiatives, including working with ZDHC to promote sustainable chemical management and becoming an ISEAL community member.

In other achievements for the period, the organisation issued a general ban on the use of per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS/PFC) in textiles, leather and shoes certified by Standard 100, Leather Standard und Eco Passport. Finally, Oeko-Tex also surpassed 1,000 STeP-certified production facilities in the period.
