Sustainable Textile Industry

Since 1992 the Bio-Foundation, respectively IMO, has promoted the development of a sustainable textile industry and has supported many pioneers of the sector in very different fields.
 
IMO played a decisive role in the development of the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) and offers a unique online system for the verification of chemical auxiliary agents and dyes used in the textile production. In collaboration with the International Association of Natural Textile Industry (IVN), requirements for the production of natural leather were defined. IMO is actively involved in the formulation of guidelines for the recycling of fibre material and accessories, and has also made available criteria for the organic production of natural fibres.
 
In addition to this, the Bio-Foundation provides guidelines for sustainable cleaning and care products at no charge.
