Fashions come and go. But these days, looking good isn’t good enough.

As awareness of the hundreds of chemical substances contained in shoes, clothing and other everyday textiles grows, the environmental and human health concerns are also escalating. Time is running out for manufacturers to demonstrate that their apparel and footwear is produced safely and sustainably.

Increasing consumer and regulatory pressure has turned the trickle of companies participating in the Greenpeace DETOX campaign into a tsunami. However, many firms are finding it difficult to meet the myriad of criteria required to access markets and win orders.


Survival of the Cleanest

  • With its extensive international expertise and deep technical knowledge, TÜV Rheinland offers a full portfolio of DETOX supply chain services, enabling it to be a convenient and cost-efficient one-stop shop.
  • TÜV Rheinland’s comprehensive range of DETOX services enable companies of all kinds – manufacturers, brands, and retailers – to sharpen their competitive edge to capture the confidence of an increasingly environmentally aware customer base.
  • Enhancing your DETOX profile does more than reduce and mitigate risks. It can also establish your company as an industry leader and, therefore, increase brand reputation and stakeholder trust.
  • In addition to meeting regulatory, environmental and social requirements, partnering with TÜV Rheinland to eliminate harmful chemicals in your textile production process can make entering even the most tightly-controlled markets possible and profitable.
