OEKO-TEX Standard 100®
Confidence in Textiles
In a world of complicated labeling, it is becoming increasingly difficult for consumers to know which textiles are truly free of harmful substances. That is why Koppermann is certified according to the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. The standard is an internationally valid certification indicating that strict attention has been paid to the exclusion of possible harmful substances in the textile production process as well as in any accessories used. The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is used in textile production chains worldwide. What’s more, the standard is applied at each of the many processing stages! Many Koppermann products are tested and certified according to these strict, internationally recognized criteria. Because we strive for environmental sustainability.
Global Organic Cotton Standard
Since 2008 we have been offering high-quality greige fabrics made of 100% organic cotton with the GOTS label. GOTS is the world’s leading standard for processing textiles made from organic natural fibers. The standard specifies high environmental requirements along the entire textile production chain while also demanding compliance with human rights criteria.
GOTS-certified products, from cotton cultivation, spinning, weaving, finishing, packaging, import and export to distribution, are controlled exclusively by GOTS-authorized, independent institutes.
No controlled biological and conventional fibers may be mixed nor contaminated by contact with unauthorized substances or chemicals during each one of these stages along the processing and distribution chain.
Better Cotton Initiative BCI
Founded in 2005 by an association of non-governmental organizations and companies, BCI aims to establish a global standard for sustainable cotton cultivation by working to transform the practices used in conventional cotton cultivation. With the help of targeted training for farmers, BCI has achieved a significant reduction in water consumption and use of pesticides while simultaneously increasing crop yields. BCI cotton is grown separately from conventional cotton. After harvesting and ginning, the cotton is bundled into Better Cotton, or BCI, bales, which are in high demand from BCI members.
The bales can be tracked along the production and supply chain via a mass balance system. As a member of the Better Cotton Initiative, we use cotton grown according to BCI standards in many of our products. By doing so, we are contributing to sustainable improvement in cotton cultivation worldwide. Better for the people who produce it, better for the environment in which it grows and better for the future of the industry.
