Fineotex Chemical Limited, a leading chemical company, has got ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® certification. ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® is an independent certification system for chemicals, colorants and auxiliaries used in the textile and leather industry.
The green rating has been awarded by Hohenstein – an independent and neutral renowned testing system.
In a statement, Aarti Jhunjhunwala, ED of the company, said, “With this independent certification, FCL’s products demonstrate the sustainable approach they have adopted, thus instilling confidence in procurement and encouraging trust in our products and practices.
Mumbai-based Fineotex is a leading speciality chemical producer with a market leader position in the international textiles industry. The company has entered the next phase of growth by diversifying into growing home care and hygiene products, and drilling specialty chemical segments.
Arindam Choudhuri, CEO of the company, said, “It is with immense pride that we receive this certificate. The ECO PASSPORT certification by Hohenstein Institute, Germany, is a validation of FCL’s strong belief system that responsible manufacturing is not a priority, but the core DNA of all our formulations and products. FCL’s products lend trust and confidence that every product is hallmarked for safety and free from harmful substances.”
The tests also check for any element that may be harmful to human health. The certificates instil confidence and help consumers make informed purchasing decisions.
Products that are awarded OEKO-TEX® reflect that on the one hand textiles and leather products have been tested for harmful substances, and on the other ensure that textile products have been manufactured in an environment-friendly and socially-responsible way. In doing so, Hohenstein provides effective consumer protection and transparent information about sustainable, responsible production along the textile supply chain.
