BERLIN – Germany's Grüner Knopf (Green Button) government-run sustainability scheme has been accused of failing to meet its promises to deliver clothes and textiles made in line with social and environmental standards.

Two NGOs, the Swiss organisation Public Eye and FEMNET which promotes women's development in Africa, highlight what they describe as "deficiencies" in the initiative's standard and testing process.

The German Ministry of Development (BMZ), which set up the Green Button project two years ago, rejects the accusations, insisting that the programme "delivers what it promises".
