STeP by OEKO-TEX®
STeP by OEKO-TEX® is a modular certification system for production facilities in the textile and leather industry, according to which Kettelhack has been certified since 2020.
STeP stands for Sustainable Textile & Leather Production and follows a holistic approach. The standard takes a look at different areas of the company in 6 modules:
- Chemicals management
- Environmental performance
- Environmental management
- Social responsibility
- Quality management
- Health protection and occupational health and safety
STeP by OEKO-TEX® sets content requirements for the individual business areas. This standard is thus an ideal complement to our existing environmental management system according to EMAS, which primarily contains systemic requirements.
