Criteria for Production Sites and Companies

The bluesign® system specifies the requirements for each step of the process chain in compliance with the five principles of sustainability. The criteria are based on the “Best Available Technology”-(BAT) concept and require a high level of safety for human beings, for the environment and for sustainable production.


Corresponding to BAT, the latest locally available technological solution has to be implemented. Referring to existing machinery and process technology efficiency can be optimized in order to maximize the environmental, economical and also technological potential of the individual system partner. The essential aim of the system partner criteria is the continuous development and improvement with focus on ecological efficiency – without compromised functionality, quality or design.


In addition to the principles of sustainability, the bluesign® system partners are obliged to recognize criteria regarding social responsibility. They commit to the observance of UN Global Compact, the international initiative supporting universal social and environmental business principles.
