GOTS

GERRY WEBER has been GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified since 2017. This world-leading standard guar­an­tees the use of textiles made from (at least 70%) or­gan­ic­ally produced natural fibres.

GOTS allows us to offer products that are inspected and certified through­out the entire textile supply chain, from fibre pro­duc­tion to the retailer, while complying with com­pre­hens­ive social criteria. The standard covers the pro­duc­tion, making-up, packaging, labelling, trade and dis­tri­bu­tion of all textiles.

Oeko-tex

In 2020, we obtained cer­ti­fic­a­tion according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which guar­an­tees that all com­pon­ents of a product have been tested for harmful sub­stances and that these are below the legal limits. In addition, materials that are not yet regulated by law, but which pose a health risk, are also excluded.

ISO 50001

Since 2016, GERRY WEBER’s energy man­age­ment system has been certified to ISO 50001 in all European entities. In­creas­ingly scarce resources, climate pro­tec­tion and the energy trans­ition are forcing us to rethink. The in­tro­duc­tion of sys­tem­at­ic energy man­age­ment is not only a matter of course for us, but also a necessity as energy costs continue to rise. The main goal is to con­tinu­ously improve the energy ef­fi­ciency of our company so as to ul­ti­mately reduce carbon emissions.

ISO 14001

GERRY WEBER has operated an in­teg­rated en­vir­on­ment­al man­age­ment system for many years. To underline our active com­mit­ment to the en­vir­on­ment and nature, we had this man­age­ment system certified to ISO 14001 in 2019. This way, we make it trans­par­ent to our stake­hold­ers that we are con­tinu­ously in­creas­ing our resource ef­fi­ciency and thus reducing the en­vir­on­ment­al impact. For us, en­vir­on­ment­al pro­tec­tion and sus­tain­ab­il­ity are not only topics for com­mu­nic­a­tion, but also value-creating factors.

Dialog Textil-Bekleidung

Dialog Textil-Bekleidung (DTB) is a platform for open dialogue between experts that we use regularly. Companies from the entire textile chain (including brands and retailers) form working groups with edu­ca­tion­al in­sti­tu­tions, in­sti­tutes and industry-relevant bodies to develop solutions for textiles-related issues. Within the textile and clothing industry, the main focus is on improving product quality. Dialog Textil-Bekleidung strengthens the economic ef­fi­ciency and com­pet­it­ive­ness of its in­ter­na­tion­al members.

CONFEDERATION OF THE GERMAN TEXTILE AND FASHION INDUSTRY

In economic policy matters, our industry is rep­res­en­ted by the Con­fed­er­a­tion of the German Textile and Fashion Industry (tex­til+­mode), which also serves as an em­ploy­ers’ as­so­ci­ation in the area of social and col­lect­ive bar­gain­ing policy. One of the goals of the Con­fed­er­a­tion is to secure the in­nov­at­ive strength and thus the leading position of textile and fashion companies worldwide and to demon­strate the at­tract­ive­ness of Germany as a business location at home and abroad. The Con­fed­er­a­tion is divided into regional as­so­ci­ations and spe­cial­ist as­so­ci­ations. They are tasked with safe­guard­ing and promoting common economic, pro­fes­sion­al and technical industry interests.

PARTNERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE TEXTILES

In response to tragic accidents in textile factories, such as the Rana Plaza disaster in 2013, the then German Devel­op­ment Minister Dr Gerd Müller initiated the found­a­tion of the Textiles Part­ner­ship in 2014. Govern­ments, companies, non-gov­ern­ment­al or­gan­isa­tions, trade unions and standard-setting or­gan­isa­tions have joined forces in the Textiles Part­ner­ship to sus­tain­ably improve social and en­vir­on­ment­al con­di­tions along the supply chain. This is to be achieved with unified means and measures as well as with joint action and leverage.
