STeP certification by OEKO-TEX®

The Evolon® manufacturing facility in Colmar has received the STeP (Sustainable Leather & Textile Production) certification awarded by the OEKO-TEX® institute. Unlike many other evaluation systems, it involves a comprehensive consideration of the manufacturing conditions from an ecological and social point of view, according to six main categories of analysis in a highly detailed audit:

  • Chemical management
  • Environmental performance
  • Environmental management
  • Social responsibility
  • Quality management
  • Health and safety in the workplace

With the STeP certification awarded to Freudenberg and Evolon®, you can be sure that you are working with a socially responsible manufacturer, who places great emphasis on the health and safety of its operators and uses environmentally friendly facilities and processes. SteP fully complies with the DETOX TO ZERO criteria by OEKO-TEX®. This specifically concerns chemical management and wastewater quality.
