Bluesign technologies, a global developer of the bluesign system adopted by worldwide leading textile and accessory manufacturers for sustainable textiles, in cooperation with Stahl, a leading chemical supplier for leather chemistry and bluesign system partner headquartered in the Netherlands, has extended the bluesign bluefinder for leather chemistry.

The bluesign bluefinder for leather chemistry will provide a robust solution for proactively managing chemicals for the leather and footwear industry. The online application based on an applied practice called Input Stream Management, is, with over 10,000 chemical products, the world’s first and most comprehensive positive list of chemical formulations. It helps partners to properly manage chemicals and to replace hazardous chemicals with safer alternatives. Partners include stakeholders in the global apparel and footwear industry, ranging from chemical suppliers to manufacturers and brands.

Kurt Schlaepfer, head customer relation management of Bluesign technologies said, “The bluesign bluefinder has been proven as a functional tool to detox a supply chain covering the complete textile production process. We thoroughly assess the chemical products with on-site verified data and practice oriented risk assessment including hazard assessment and exposure scenario calculations to ensure their compliance to strict limits regarding ecological and toxicological properties and risks.”

Michael Costello, sustainability director of Stahl said, “With the extension of the bluesign bluefinder to leather chemistry, the whole industry can benefit from bluesign’s huge knowledge of chemicals assessment and chemical change management in the supply chain.” (GK)
