With OEKO-TEX® DETOX TO ZERO, producers in the textile and leather industries are provided with a valuable tool for achieving Greenpeace DETOX goals. DETOX TO ZERO assesses, audits and reports on the wastewater and sludge quality, the use of chemicals and other environmental aspects. The independent verification is aimed at wet facilities along the entire supply chain of the textile and leather industry and supports them on the path to greater transparency and sustainability.
DETOX TO ZERO is designed as a verification system for suppliers of brands and retailers who have made a commitment to the Greenpeace DETOX campaign. The target group also includes buyers and suppliers who proactively focus on compliance with Greenpeace detox goals.
DETOX TO ZERO is not a traditional certification system. Participants can neither “pass” nor “fail”. Instead, DETOX TO ZERO is concerned with analysing the current situation of the production facility. In doing so, the focus is on the continuous reduction of harmful substances in production. In a status report, the producer receives detailed information about its chemical use, an assessment of the wastewater analyses and recommendations on environmental protection measures.
