Taiwanese Singtex to integrate the bluesign standard

bluesign technologies ag announces that Singtex Industrial Co LTD, Taiwan has signed the contract to perform a bluesign screening. Singtex relies on a bluesign screening to practically manage all environment, health and safety (EHS) issues in its newly built manufacturing site. In a second step, after the successful implementation of the recommendations given in the screening report, Singtex will integrate the bluesign standard into their new processing unit to proactively manage all environmental aspects from the very beginning.

The bluesign screening includes a detailed on-site evaluation of the environment, resource and workplace situation of textile manufacturing sites according to the five principles of the bluesign standard including resource productivity, consumer safety, air emission, water emission and occupational health and safety. It indicates resource- and cost saving potentials compared to "Best Available Technology".

“One of the biggest advantages of the bluesign standard is the fact that it's the only system worldwide which takes all relevant aspects during manufacturing – from customer safety issues, to environmental aspects, to air and water emission – into consideration. On top of this, we also balance the resource consumption with the goal to reduce the overall environmental impact of the textile industry”, says Mr. Detlef Fischer, Vice President of bluesign technologies ag.

“Singtex Industrial Co LTD is working to implement our system in their new production facilities in Taiwan. Our goal is to provide them with assistance regarding the newest technology and the best chemicals and dyes to reduce their environmental footprint, this is our challenge.”
