Texworld USA to see Oeko-Tex's sustainability tool MySTeP

Dr. Jean-Pierre Haug, General Secretary of the  International OEKO-TEX Association, will announce another OEKO-TEX innovation at a Texworld USA gala open to all Texworld USA participants and media. The event will be held Wednesday, July 23, 6:00PM-8:00PM in the Javits Center River Pavilion. 
 
At last year’s Texworld USA, OEKO-TEX unveiled the new STeP by OEKO-TEX certification for sustainable textile production facilities. STeP by OEKO-TEX certification is designed for brands, retailers, and manufacturers from all sectors of the textile supply chain who want to validate their sustainable production in a transparent, credible, and clear manner that is consistent around the world. 
 
This year, Dr. Haug will present MySTeP, a robust, secure database application that houses a textile product manufacturer’s information related to its sustainable operations. The MySTeP database facilitates private, transparent communication between customers and suppliers, ensures that regulatory compliance data are complete and up to date, and helps facility operators more easily manage the many components of a comprehensive sustainable production strategy that is both environmentally and socially responsible. The new OEKO-TEX API (Application Program Interface) further aids communication and data sharing via portals and cloud-based vendor management platforms. 
 
“Consumer demand for textile products made in factories that operate with respect for their communities, their employees, and the environment continues to grow,” says Dr. Haug. “The new STeP by OEKO-TEX certification and the new MySTeP database give brands, retailers, and manufacturers throughout the textile supply chain a confidential, concise, and effective method for optimizing, tracking, and communicating sustainable production measures in a credible and transparent manner.” 
 
OEKO-TEX also offers the globally respected OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification for textile products that are tested to be free from harmful levels of more than 300 potentially dangerous substances such as residual pesticides, carcinogenic dyestuffs, heavy metals like lead, and formaldehyde.
