Step by Oeko-Tex: Sustainability, from Fiber to Finish

Step by Oeko-Tex is an independent certification system for companies in the textile chain that want to analyze, certify and optimize their production sites in terms of sustainable and socially responsible production conditions.

Step by Oeko-Tex is the next step on from the well-known Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which only takes into account individual products and not their production.

The Step by Oeko-Tex certificate is awarded by the Oeko-Tex Community, which is part of the Hohenstein Institute, one of the most respected research facilities in the German textile industry.

Step by Oeko-Tex: For Production Plants 

Step by Oeko-Tex was launched in 2014, replacing Oeko-Tex Standard 1000. Even more famous is Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, although this only tests the health safety of products, and not the entire production chain like Step by Oeko-Tex does.


Step stands for Sustainable Textile Production, and is used to certify production plants at all processing stages, from fiber production to spinning and weaving/knitting, all the way up to refinement plants and manufacturers.

The Step by Oeko-Tex certification divides the topic of sustainability into six different modules: chemicals and their use, environmental performance, environmental management, social responsibility, quality management, and occupational health and safety.
