The textile industry being one of the most emissive sectors in terms of greenhouse gases, various labels and certifications have been created to valorize and frame the efforts of each one.
For the past twenty years, Subrenat has been investing in providing concrete solutions to give more guarantees: on safety, environmental impact, contribution to social improvements. The choice was made to engage in a certification process, in order to offer solutions that meet a precise reference system, and which are regularly audited by independent certifying bodies.
Labels and certifications at Subrenat
GOTS: Cotton is a natural material much sought after for the comfort it provides, but it is also resource intensive. Since 2008, in order to ensure that the cotton used in its products is produced without water or pesticides, Subrenat has developed GOTS certified products. Thus, the group is able to offer 100% organically grown cotton textiles, without chlorine or GMO certified GOTS. These criteria allow crop rotation to improve soil fertility and guarantee low water consumption.
Fairtrade: In 2011, Subrenat obtains for the first time the Fairtrade certification for its fair trade cotton textiles. For more than 10 years, Subrenat has been contributing to a fair remuneration of cotton producers and to the financing of local development projects close to the farmers. This supports for example the construction of a dispensary or the advent of a radio station in several villages in Africa. Thus, our FairTrade products promote the empowerment of cotton producers and ensure economic, social and environmental guarantees at each level of the production chain.
OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100: Since 2013, Subrenat also offers a range of OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified woven, non-woven and made-up items. The skin and health safety of these textiles is thus established and regularly monitored. The OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 label also certifies the absence of pesticide residues or heavy metals such as lead or cadmium. It also guarantees the stability of colors and resistance to washing.
GRS: To limit the use of resources, whether synthetic or natural, recycled materials are an important issue, Subrenat has chosen to offer textiles covered by the GRS certification since 2022, which certifies the use of at least 20% recycled material. This is the most recent certification obtained by the group to date. To obtain this certification, the group has undergone an inspection of the entire production chain on chemical, environmental and social criteria.
