OEKO-TEX announces sustainability award for textile firms
Jan '13
The International OEKO-TEX Association is for the first time presenting an award to companies who have achieved outstanding performance and innovations in the area of sustainability.

The "OEKO-TEX Sustainability Award" will be inaugurated by the OEKO-TEX Association to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the OEKO-TEX Testing and Certification System. It does not award any prize money.

A panel of experts from the OEKO-TEX Association will each month pre-select two "Companies of the Month" from the applications received.

Each of these companies has its products certified from a human-ecological perspective in accordance with the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and has further production operating under proven environmentally-friendly and socially-responsible conditions in accordance with the OEKO-TEX Standard 1000.

Manufacturers and retailers who are certified worldwide according to the OEKO-TEX Standard 100, 1000 or 100plus are eligible to apply.

The companies nominated as "Company of the Month" will receive a certificate, a logo graphic and an online advertising banner which you can use to inform your customers of your commitment to sustainability and about the nomination for the "Sustainability Award".
