Advantages of Certification
Certification according to a demanding and highly credible seal functions as an avatar of your business.
Preeminant market positioning
BEST, GOTS and NATURLEDER are highly credible and strict standards that evaluate environmental, social and health relevant aspects of products and businesses. Consumer magazines, sustainability blogs and platforms as well as critical consumer initiatives are unanimous in acclaiming these three IVN quality seals as exemplary. They function as a highly efficient communication tool for businesses wanting to articulate their commitment to ethical and responsible standards of business.
The IVN certification procedure requires that label issuing entities, testing institutes and the business to be certified are all separate and independent of each other. Testing institutes are nationally accredited and are themselves tested regularly. Every step in the production chain of a textile product is tested on site. This ensures a high credibility for IVN standards and, through them, for your business.
Our three quality seals ensure that the certified products your business manufactures or offers are free of harmful substances and are produced on an environmentally friendly and socially acceptable basis. This also applies to all products and services of your certified suppliers, extending all the way to fiber creation. As a result, you can defer a part of your responsibility to the reliable and independent shoulders of third parties.
IVN Certification simplifies sustainable supply chain management. Certified businesses are not obliged to personally reassure themselves of each step of the production chain for their products but can rely on supplier lists and positive lists. This saves time and money.
