Deutsche Bahn commits to fair corporate clothing with the Green Button
Deutsche Bahn has set the goal of certifying all its corporate clothing with the government-run textile label Green Button. The main supplier is already certified. This means that in future all 43,000 Deutsche Bahn employees in the customer-related field service will wear sustainable corporate clothing.
The new outfits for the train attendants, the employees in the on-board bistros, the service centres and the service staff in Deutsche Bahn's stations were completely redesigned by fashion designer Guido Maria Kretschmer and are subject to ambitious sustainability criteria in addition to high standards of design and quality. This commitment of Deutsche Bahn to social responsibility is reinforced and made visible by certification with the Green Button.
Particularly in the area of public and private procurement with often large quantities, the Green Button can have a significant effect on a rethinking towards more sustainability in the entire textile industry.
