EDELRID GmbH & Co. KG
“Our ropes are eco-friendly”
For more than 4 years now, EDELRID has produced its rope collection and parts of its sling collection using the bluesign® system. We were the first rope manufacturer in the world to take the innovative and technically demanding step of ensuring that all our ropes meet the stringent bluesign® criteria, setting new industry standards for innovation and sustainability.
On the one hand, it is a key part of the EDELRID corporate philosophy that our processes and supply chain are put through their paces by the bluesign® Input Stream Management system. For example, by converting our rope manufacturing to the bluesign® system for yarn dyes we managed to make significant savings in terms of resources in rope manufacturing.
On the other hand, growing customer awareness shows that selling points such as bluesign® system work and our commitment is rewarded when it comes to choosing products.
For EDELRID, our partnership with bluesign technologies is a key step towards a future of healthier, more sustainable products and we will work on increasing the proportion of bluesign® products in our collections in the coming years.
