ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX is an independent certification system for chemicals, colorants, and auxiliaries used in the textile and leather industry. During a multistep process, the international agency analyses whether each individual ingredient in the chemical product meets the statutory requirements.
“With this independent certification, FCL’s products demonstrate the sustainable approach they have adopted, thus instilling confidence in procurement and encouraging trust in our products and practices,” said Ms Aarti Jhunjhunwala, Executive Director of Fineotex Chemical Limited. ECO PASSPORT comprises of a comprehensive approach for the handling of chemicals and is thus a pioneer for “Green Chemistry”.
Arindam Choudhuri, CEO of Fineotex Chemical Limited said, “It is with immense pride that we receive this certificate. The ECO PASSPORT certification by Hohenstein Institute, Germany, is a validation of FCL’s strong belief system that responsible manufacturing is not a priority, but the core DNA of all our formulations and products. FCL’s products lend trust and confidence that every product is hallmarked for safety and free from harmful substances.”
The tests also check for any element that may be harmful to human health. The certificates instill confidence and help consumers make informed purchasing decisions. Products that are awarded OEKO-TEX® reflect that on the one hand textiles and leather products have been tested for harmful substances, and on the other ensure that textile products have been manufactured in an environmentally-friendly and socially-responsible way.
In doing so, Hohenstein provides effective consumer protection and transparent information about sustainable, responsible production along the textile supply chain.
Both, brands and manufacturers value the ECO PASSPORT certification as a credible proof of sustainable textile and leather production. The label also gives proof of which articles meet the criteria for ecologically-responsible textile and leather manufacturing.
