Q&A

Purpose:

From hazardous substances and water pollution to natural resource use, the manufacturing of textile is can be the source of a range of forms of environmental degradation. The EU Ecolabel aims to counter this reality with durability requirements and strict controls on fibres, production processes and chemicals.

From the production of the fibre, to the dyeing, washing and final assembly of the product, the EU Ecolabel establishes minimum requirements that companies must comply with to receive the certification. Some requirements ensure that natural fibres are either organic or use a minimum amount of pesticides during their production. Other criteria forces manufacturers to treat wastewater in order to remove the toxic substances. The criteria aim to contribute to preservation of the environment, to ensure the well-being of the workers and communities surrounding the production plants and to ensure the consumer has a quality, long lasting product.
