Georg Dieners, CEO of OEKO-TEX® Service GmbH: "OEKO-TEX® is excited to attend the IULTCS Congress to exchange ideas with the many leather industry leaders in attendance. The addition of the LEATHER STANDARD to the OEKO-TEX® portfolio and new partnerships with leading leather institutes, FILK and PFI, reinforce OEKO-TEX’s commitment to develop the science and testing technologies that help companies produce more sustainable leather products. OEKO-TEX® will apply its 25 years of testing and certification experience to help build bridges between the leather and textile industries in support of more sustainable apparel, footwear, home furnishings, and other consumer goods.
