What is Bluesign®?
The Bluesign® standard is a new generation of ecological standards for environmental protection set up by academia, industry, environmental protection, and consumer organizations in the EU. This standard was announced on Oct. 17, 2000 in Hanover, Germany by Bluesign Technologies AG, a company based in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Bluesign-approved textile brands and products, meaning the processes and products align ecologically with Environment, Health and Safety (EHS), are the latest global environmental protection standard and ensure consumer safety when using.
Many environmental protection standards do tests on finished products, while Bluesign® does the contrary. This standard verifies if the raw materials and processes are compliant before production so as to prohibit hazardous substances from the beginning. This standard is designed based on the concept that if the materials contain no hazardous substances, then the end product will be green.
The Bluesign® standard is mainly based on the following 5 principles:
Resource ProductivityDedicated to manufacturing products of maximum quality and added value by minimizing the consumption of resources, as well as reducing environment impact.
Consumer SafetyConsumer safety means high quality textiles, harmlessness to health, and the application of sustainable principle during manufacturing.
Air EmissionIn the whole production process, exhaust emission must be strictly controlled. Use low-emission components, optimize energy use, and reduce CO2 emissions.
Water EmissionThe goal of water emissions is to return the purified water to the natural cycle and reduce the pollution to rivers, lakes and oceans to a minimum. To achieve this goal, you can apply sustainable components and optimize production and wastewater treatment technology.
Occupational Health & SafetyThis concerns the health and safety of employees in the textile industry. It means detecting and improving possible partial defects according to regulations.
