GreenScreen Certified Standard for Textile Chemicals sets three levels of certification: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. The multiple certification levels allow for continual improvement and acknowledge organisations that are early in the journey to safer chemicals focusing on removal of chemicals of concern. They recognise those who are designing formulations using more benign ingredients and provide transparency on chemical hazards, while protecting proprietary formulations.
"For years brands and manufacturers have asked us, 'How can I use GreenScreen to identify and showcase safer chemical formulations?' Our new certification for the textile industry answers that call," said Mark Rossi, executive director of CPA.
Garmon Chemicals, the forward-looking Italian firm leader in the R&D and marketing of total chemical solutions for garment finishes, is the first company with GreenScreen Certified formulations.
"GreenScreen Certified gives us the platform to clearly communicate our commitment to environmentally sound solutions for the denim and fashion industries," highlighted Alberto De Conti, chief marketing officer at Garmon Chemicals.
"CPA has a strong network of GreenScreen Professionals, and chemical formulators interested in certification can work with a GreenScreen Licensed Profiler or GreenScreen Consultant to certify their products," said Shari Franjevic, interim GreenScreen programme manager at CPA. (KD)
