Idaman Eramandiri (IEM) has become the first textile manufacturer in Indonesia to be awarded 'Made in Green by Oeko-Tex' label, independent testing and certification enterprise Testex AG has announced.
 
Made in Green is the Oeko-Tex label for textiles, which are sustainably produced and tested for harmful substances. Each item certified with Made in Green features a unique product ID or QR code. This enables consumers to trace the product transparently across the supply chain.
 
“Made in Green enables us to depict our sustainability efforts as well as the relationships with our long-term suppliers and customers in a transparent way,” says Hendra Indrawirawan, president director of the Bandung based company.
 
IEM manufactures a broad range of yarn and embroidery thread made of polyester, viscose and polyamide. It produces around 1.2 million kg of dyed and finished yarns annually for clothing and other industries.
 
“IEM's implementation of the required STeP criteria was exemplary. For instance, due to their modern monitoring system of harmful substances the company did extremely well in their 'Chemicals Management', says Adrian Meili, head auditor of Testex, which has been certifying IEM's yarns according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 since 2007.
 
Any company along the textile chain – from producer to retailer – can label its finished textile items and semi-finished products with Made in Green, provided they fulfill two criteria: The product must be certified based on Oeko-Tex Standard 100; and the textile product must be supplied by a 'STeP by Oeko-Tex' certified production facility.
 
In addition, the Indonesian company also reduced its fresh water consumption drastically by recycling wastewater and natural gas will replace coal as main energy source. In addition, employees receive regular health checks and health and safety requirements are strictly applied. (RKS)
