Sustainable leather processing

June 5th, 2019 / By: / Industry News

When it comes to environmentally friendly production, the leather industry is still in its infancy. OEKO-TEX is changing that with the launch of its Sustainable Textile and Leather Production Certification (STeP). Until now, certification according to STeP by OEKO-TEX was only available to producers within the textile supply chain. New OEKO-TEX regulations were instituted in April 2019, following a three-month transition period. STeP helps manufacturers to design production processes that are more environmentally friendly and sustainable, and to communicate these services to others in a transparent way.
