bluesign® — Solutions and services for a sustainable textile industry - Bluesign

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® for business

Brands, retailers, manufacturers, and chemical suppliers can transform their supply chain by implementing the bluesign system.

bluesign® for consumers

Choose products that meet the strictest environmental and worker safety standards where you see items with the bluesign® PRODUCT label.

Behind every bluesign®

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.

Adrian Huber

Head of Corporate Responsibility at Mammut

“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.”

Frank Henke

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.”

Kerry Bannigan

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.”

The most effective way to guarantee a safe end consumer product is to start at the very beginning of its production!
A bluesign® PRODUCT must be made with 90% bluesign® APPROVED fabrics and 30% bluesign® APPROVED accessories. This means that at every step of the production process, environmental impacts, worker conditions, and resource efficiency met the strict standards of the bluesign® CRITERIA. The product you buy has been friendly to the people and the planet from the very start 💙
