The Global Recycled Standard (GRS)

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of Recycled Content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions.

The goal of the GRS is to increase use of Recycled materials in products and reduce/eliminate the harm caused by its production. Additionally to reduce harmful impact of production to people and the environment, provide assurance that materials in the final product are actually Recycled and processed more sustainably and to drive innovation in addressing quality issues in the use of Recycled materials.

The Global Recycled Standard is intended for use with any product that contains at least 20% Recycled Material. Each stage of production is required to be certified, beginning at the recycling stage and ending at the last seller in the final business-to-business transaction.

ETKO offers GRS certification service for textile industry.
