Your partner in responsible and more sustainable textiles
What we do and why it matters
The gold standard for more sustainable textiles is blue.
From fiber to finished product, we partner with brands, manufacturers, and chemical suppliers because the world needs safer workplaces and textile products that are less impactful on the environment and people.
Consumers can trust that bluesign labeled textiles and products from the chemical inputs to the final production have met the strictest standards throughout the supply chain.
bluesign® SYSTEM is unique. We proactively eliminate environmentally harmful substances right at the start of the textile supply chain using Input Stream Management to minimize impacts on people and planet.
Every item carrying a bluesign PRODUCT or APPROVED label has been manufactured to strict safety and environmental requirements. Known as the bluesign CRITERIA, these are the highest standards in the industry.
About our partners
bluesign® is built on a partner network, that stretches from best-in-class chemical suppliers at its foundation, to global brands and retailers at its peak.
Each one of our +800 partners is able to connect to the others, to access products and capabilities that are aligned with bluesign® CRITERIA.
With the collective effort working to the benefit of all, we can together reduce our impact on people and the planet.
“The holistic bluesign® approach helps us measure our impact, set clear targets, and reduce our environmental impact significantly where it matters the most; in the dyeing and finishing processes. We are proud to have increased the share of bluesign products to over 60% in the past ten years. Our goal is to achieve 90% by 2025. bluesign® is pivotal in achieving our ambitious sustainability and climate targets.”
SVP Sustainability Policy & Engagement, Global Legal at Adidas
“I see governments trying to regulate a lot of things I’m not sure if this is the right way forward. I would rather think about how we can incentivize companies to play to their strengths, and to find new ways of collaboration further upstream in supply chains to build a joint responsibility for things to be changed.”
Executive Director at Fashion Impact Fund
“The Sustainable Development Goals cannot be achieved without the involvement of the fashion industry. Fashion needs a seat at the table when the world leaders meet and high-level convenings occur because when you’re talking about gender equality for example, that is not happening without the fashion industry being put in check.”
