“Being conscientious comes from research, attention, a deep commitment and pointed awareness about what is happening to our planet,” explained Fatih Konukoglu, CEO of ISKO Division and board member of SANKO Group.

“Here at ISKO to produce means to care: care about the people, the environment and product. This firm belief is the soul of our nurturing approach. We believe in the future: that’s why we continue to invest in protecting our planet.”

Commitment to responsibility

According to the company, the certification is another confirmation of ISKO’s deep commitment to responsibility, one that earned the company the 2016 Nordic Swan Ecolabel for several products within the ISKO EARTH FIT line.

ISKO is now the first and the only denim mill in the world to have received these two distinguished recognitions. ISKO EU Ecolabel products will be launched in May 2017 as part of the new collection.

“It is great that the world’s biggest denim manufacturer shows such a commitment to sustainability. If we are going to succeed with the necessary green shift in our global economy, it’s important that companies like ISKO clear the way. When giants take steps towards more sustainability, the impacts are huge,” said Anita Winsnes, managing director of Ecolabelling Norway.
