And the individual companies in the textile chain are regularly tested according to environmental management, management of hazardous substances and work safety management by bluesign® auditors, such as chemical and production activities, for example relating to energy, water and raw material consumption. And brand name companies have their supply chain management audited.
What is a bluesign® PRODUCT?
A bluesign® PRODUCT stands for:
- production as free from hazardous substances as possible,
- no environmentally-critical substances and
- an end product that does not present any health risk.
The benchmark here is that 90% of the main material must have been tested by bluesign® (= bluesign approved) and 20 - 30% of accessories or small parts, such as buckles, webbing or prints. This is why both our suppliers and the majority of components used and ingredients in these products must be tested by bluesign®.
