LAMEIRINHO, a certified company OEKO-TEX® STeP

Last June 2023, LAMEIRINHO was granted OEKO-TEX® STeP certification.

OEKO-TEX® STeP stands for Sustainable Textile and Leather Production and is a modular certification system for production facilities in the textile and leather industry.

The main goal of this modular certification system is to implement long-term ecological production processes, improve health and safety at work and promote socially responsible working conditions at production environments

OEKO-TEX® STeP is different from other certification systems because it’s based on a comprehensive analysis and assessment of production conditions, rather than just considering individual aspects of sustainability. STeP analyzes all important areas of a company using 6 modules:

• Management of chemicals

• Environmental Protection

• Environmental Management

• Social responsibility

• Quality management

• Health and Safety at Work

This was another step taken by LAMEIRINHO towards sustainability.
