Neutral: Mixing certifications for higher standards

At Neutral, we believe in being okay. With 100% commitment to certified clothing, we can improve our planet, make people healthier and give farmers hope. That’s okay.

Mixing certifications for higher standards

Neutral considers themselves as a sustainable business selling textiles, not a textile business selling sustainability. This holistic view has given Neutral and its stakeholders a different approach to sustainable garments. When examining the ‘how’, it found that the best way of creating truly sustainable garments was through a mix of several international standards covering all parts of the business.

Through a mix-and-match of the highest environmental, social and ethical standards, Neutral follows the latest knowledge and criteria set by experts. These are controlled by independent parties to ensure that Neutral and its value chain fulfil the strict regulations.

All Neutral garments are certified by GOTS, Fairtrade, SA8000 and EU Ecolabel.

For Neutral, compliance functions as a baseline and Neutral continuously seeks to innovate and make even more positive changes. For example, all Neutral products are produced using renewable energy and the company works in partnerships to protect biodiversity, wildlife and small cotton-farmers while converting conventional cotton farming to organic.
