Where sustainability begins

What makes the bluesign® system so unique? The bluesign® system helps to eliminate harmful substances from the very beginning. Other systems certify finished products notwithstanding the fact that new problematic or unknown substances could have been previously added during the process cycle.

Minimizing risks

Therefore, the Input Stream Management of the bluesign® system is tackling the root of environmental issue. All applied components and processes are already audited in advance of the production. That guarantees the application of sustainable ingredients in a clean process at which end stands a safely manufactured product, irrespective of the number of process steps or manufacturers involved.

Business advantage

According to the Input Stream Management textile entrepreneurs will boost their business with a minimum of environmental impact but a maximum of sustainability and image improvement.
