Our Certified Production
At Superstainable we are dedicated to following the 17 UN Sustainability Goals, and we encorporate them through all of our organization, including the entire supply chain. One of the ways that we ensure that our entire supply chain lives up to these very strict standards are through collaborating with different certification organizations, that ensure our products live up to all the demands and strict regulations regarding using recycled material, organic resources and sustainable production methods, and follows through all supply chain links including resource selection, processing, production and sales. We at Superstainable utilize the external organization of Textile Exchange and it’s many sub organizations to monitor and control that our entire supply chain lives up to strict standards. On our behalf the surveillance is carried out by Control Union which we currently hold the following certificates at:
GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)
GOTS ensures the organic status of textiles from the harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labelling, in order to provide credible assurances to the consumer. The standard covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of all textiles made from at least 70 percent certified organic natural fibres. The final fibre products may include, but are not limited to, yarns, fabrics, clothes and home textiles. However, this standard does not set criteria for leather products.
OCS (Organic Content Standard)
The OCS 100 relies on third-party verification to confirm whether a final product contains the accurate amount of a given organically grown material. OCS allows for transparent, consistent and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of organic material content claims on products. OCS 100 covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of a product that contains at least 95 percent certified ‘organic’ materials. It can be used as a business-to-business tool to give companies the means to ensure that they are selling quality and getting what they pay for.
GRS (Global Recycle Standard)
The GRS is intended to meet the needs of companies looking to verify the recycled content of their products (both finished and intermediate) and to verify responsible social, environmental and chemical practices in their production. The objectives of the GRS are to define requirements to ensure accurate content claims and good working conditions, and that harmful environmental and chemical impacts are minimised. This includes companies in ginning, spinning, weaving and knitting, dyeing and printing and stitching in more than 50 countries.
