A special project in 2021
A special project in 2021 will be the integration of the carbon and water footprint into our MADE IN GREEN label. “, explains Secretary General Georg Dieners
OEKO-TEX®'s objective for 2021 is the systemic integration of the carbon and water footprint into the
MADE IN GREEN label. This will enable consumers to find out directly, by scanning the label of each
product, what impact the manufacture of the respective article has on our ecosystem. In order to evaluate
the feasibility and examine how the carbon and water footprint can be incorporated as an integral part of
the OEKO-TEX® portfolio, OEKO-TEX® has launched a pilot project at the end of 2019 in cooperation with
CALIDA, a globally active supplier of underwear and nightwear clothing, and Quantis, a leading
international sustainability company known for their metrics-based approach to sustainability. The
intention behind product labels is to guide consumers towards products with transparent information on
their supply chain and produced by technologies with low environmental impacts.
