At a recently held Oeko-Tex International Environmental meeting hosted by the Germany based certification company; Oeko-Tex Association from October 21 to 22, it was announced that China had surpassed Germany in the number of Oeko-Tex certificates issued by the organisation.

Oeko-Tex Association is the foremost certifying authority with respect to certifying for environmentally friendly textiles. The increase in numbers proves that Chinese companies are taking increasing initiatives in supplying environmentally friendly textiles to their overseas buyers.

Safety, non-toxic and environmental performance of textiles is attracting increasing attention of the global industries, due to the ever-increasing awareness of the consumers in the western and developed countries. China accounted for 16.9 percent of total global certificates issued by the International Oeko-Tex Association.

In 2008, Asia replaced Europe to become the region, to have obtained the largest number of Oeko-Tex certificates and at the same time, China surpassed Germany for the first time to become the country that obtained the most number of certificates in the world.

Statistics also reveal that other major textile and apparel manufacturing countries and regions which have received large number of certificates are Germany, Turkey, China, Hong Kong, India, Bangladesh, Spain, Portugal and Japan.
