ISKO gets EU Ecolabel Certification

Being conscientious comes from research, attention,

deep commitment and pointed awareness about what

is happening to our planet” explains Fatih Konukoglu,

CEO of ISKO™ Division and board member of SANKO Group. Anita Winsnes, managing director of Ecolabelling Norway: “It’s great that the world’s biggest

denim manufacturer shows such a commitment to

sustainability. If we are going to succeed with the necessary

green shift in our global economy, it’s important

that companies like ISKO clear the way. When giants

take steps towards more sustainability, the impacts

are huge.

The EU Ecolabel is the official environmental label in the European Union and is based on a commitment to environmental sustainability. The criteria have been developed and agreed upon by scientists, NGOs, and stakeholders to create a credible and reliable way to make environmentally responsible choices. EU Ecolabel is a holistic label which targets all relevant environmental issues in the entire lifecycle of the product

– from resource extraction, use of energy and chemicals and CO-emissions, as well as the social conditions for works in the value chain. R.H.
