Certificates and testing
All our products are tested to meet legal requirements in all markets where we operate. On top of this, our customers will find the following labels on a large number of our textile, wood, paper and cardboard products.
The Forest Stewardship Council – also known as the FSC TM – is an international, non-profit labelling scheme for wood and paper products. FSC TM certification is your guarantee that the forest used to produce the product in question is being managed in a way that preserves biodiversity, ensures reforestation, and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring economic viability. Additionally, forests managed to FSC TM standards offer benefits to wider communities, including cleaner air and water, and contribute to mitigating the effects of climate change. The FSC TM label is used on a wide range of timber and non-timber products such as paper and cardboard used for product packaging. The majority of our wooden products are FSC TM -certified as is our new cardboard packaging as well as our catalogues and hangtags. fsc.org
Oeko-tex® is a registered trademark, representing product labels and company certifications issued by the International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile and Leather Ecology. Oeko-tex® comprises six separate sets of standards that serve different purposes; however, all of them serve to confirm the human-ecological safety of a textile or leather product throughout all stages of production along the material’s value chain. This means that an Oeko-tex® labelled product has been independently tested for the presence of chemicals that are potentially harmful to human health and our larger ecosystems. oeko-tex.com
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the leading internationally acknowledged organic textile standard. It ensures the organic status of textiles from the harvesting of the raw materials, to environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, and labelling. The standard covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of textiles made from at least 70 per cent certified organic natural fibres. global-standard.org
ClimateCalc TM is a tool for measuring the climate effect from the production of printed matters, such as books, magazines and catalogues. With ClimateCalc TM, the CO2 emission connected to the production of any given printed product becomes transparent, and emissions can be sufficiently climate compensated. The seasonal blomus catalogue is ClimateCalc TM-certified to document that the climate impact has been calculated and compensated. climatecalc.eu
