Taiwanese Sunnytex pursues bluesign certification

bluesign technologies ag announces that Sunny Special Dyeing & Finishing Company Limited (Sunnytex), Taiwan has begun the Bluesign screening process for certification as a company meeting the bluesign standard for environmental, health and safety performance at its manufacturing site.

“The bluesign standard is currently the only global solution for the textile industry that addresses customer safety issues, occupational health, and environmental concerns,” said Detlef Fischer, VP of bluesign technologies ag.

The bluesign screening includes a detailed on-site evaluation of textile manufacturing sites regarding the five principles of the bluesign standard: consumer safety, resource productivity, occupational health and safety, reduced air emissions, and clean water emissions.

Among others, bluesign's “Resource Inflation Factor” (RIF), which calculates and evaluates resources and relating cost saving potentials using the best available technology, is one reason Sunnytex seeks bluesign certification.

Fischer says, “The bluesign label is unique; it certifies compliance to the most stringent international quality requirements, giving customers confidence in the manufacturing process.

Sunnytex works to join an exclusive circle of top textile manufacturers who have earned recognition for reducing their environmental footprint.”

Charles Shih, Managing Director of Sunny Special Dyeing & Finishing Company Limited (Sunnytex) says, “Dyeing and finishing is perhaps the most energy and water consuming step in fabric production.

As one of the premier dyeing facilities in Taiwan, it has always been Sunnytex's mission to set the bar higher than required, especially in the fields of resource conservation and environmental sustainability.”

The direction and principles of the bluesign standard resonate with those of Sunnytex, confirming both the company's past efforts and future goals.
