Nordic Swan Ecolabel recognises Isko Earth Fit

Isko Earth Fit, a 360-degree, responsible innovation platform from Turkish denim fabric producer Isko, has bagged recognition of Nordic Swan Ecolabel, who has certified six articles of the Isko Earth Fit platform.

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is the official Ecolabel in the Nordic countries and was created with the purpose of providing an environmental labeling scheme that would contribute to sustainable consumption.

In a press release, Isko said it is the first denim mill in the world to have received this important and stringent certification; a major accomplishment that lauds Isko's tangible pro-environment efforts.

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel management team presented the certificate to Fatih Konukoglu, CEO of Isko and board member of Sanko Group at its headquarters in Turkey.

“This is a key achievement that clearly demonstrates that the responsible spirit of Isko is a daily guide and the Ecolabel certification is an encouragement to carry towards that goal,” Fatih Konukoglu said.

“Achieving the Nordic Swan Ecolabel is definitely not an easy task, as we have strict requirements for the entire value chain, from cotton field to the finished fabric,” Anita Winsnes, managing director of Nordic Swan Ecolabel said.

“Our emphasis is on organic cultivation, low water consumption, sound chemical use and good working conditions,” she explained.

“We are very happy that Isko has been chosen for the Swan Ecolabel, as this will bring us a huge step towards a more sustainable textile industry,” Winsnes added.

Isko has a wide range of innovative fabric technologies and products that meet the most diverse demands of the denim sector and has offices in 35 countries across the globe.

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is the official environmental label of the Nordic countries, and evaluates all relevant environmental issues in the whole life cycle of the product.

It was established in 1989 by the Nordic council of ministers with the purpose of providing an environmental labeling scheme that would contribute to a sustainable consumption and production. (AR)
