ECOSECURE certification from SGS – a supply chain management solution that demonstrates the quality, compliance and environmental credentials of your footwear and leather products by monitoring and controlling the quality of raw materials and chemicals at an upstream level.

Proving that your footwear and leather products are environmentally sound and safe for your consumers to use is essential. Our ECOSECURE Certification is a global benchmark to confirm safety compliance at product and/or component level via factory audit and chemical testing.

Our factory audit evaluates the quality management system and encourages implementation of an effective chemical management system with accurate traceability across your supply chain. In turn, this ensures consumer safety and demonstrates the control of restricted substances in consumer products.

Chemical testing ensures certified products and components are free from hazardous substances, which act as a final safeguard before they reach the consumer. ECOSECURE certification demonstrates that your footwear/ leather products and components conform to strict regulatory requirements and consumer expectations.
