Sustainable corporate clothing

Green button: a good choice

You are the kind of person who wants to know everything about your clothes. That’s a good thing! Because with your conscious and responsible purchasing behavior, you as a self-employed person and entrepreneur can actively support the upheaval in the textile industry: for example, through sustainable corporate clothing, so that the human rights of seamstresses and sewers are protected with good working conditions and fair pay and our environment is protected.

The state Green Button seal shows you which textiles have been produced in compliance with social and ecological criteria.

You can rely on that. We manufacture products that are sustainable and certified with the Green Button.

social. ecological.

The Green Button sets binding requirements to protect people and the environment in the textile production process. A total of 46 demanding social and environmental criteria must be met – from A for wastewater limits to Z for a ban on forced labor. The special feature of the Green Button is that, in addition to the product, it is always checked whether the company as a whole fulfills its human rights and environmental due diligence obligations in the textile supply chain. The corporate criteria are based on the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the recommendations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) for the textile sector.

The seal comprises 26 different product criteria, such as the ban on hazardous chemicals, the use of natural fibers tested for harmful substances and the biodegradability of chemical substances. The Green Button relies on recognized seals for the textiles to be tested. In the introductory phase, this applies to the steps “cutting and sewing” and “bleaching and dyeing”. The social product criteria of the Green Button relate to the “cutting and sewing” steps, while the ecological product criteria relate to the “bleaching and dyeing” steps. Companies present recognized, credible seals such as the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

With 20 corporate criteria, the business practices of the entire company are also examined. This is particularly relevant for production in so-called risk countries, where human rights, social and environmental standards are inadequately enforced. However, the company audit also applies to production sites within the EU. Companies must prove that any remaining risks are also adequately addressed within the EU.

state. independently certified.

The Green Button is a state seal for sustainably produced textiles and therefore sustainable corporate clothing. The state sets the criteria and conditions. Independent inspection bodies monitor compliance with these criteria.
