Trueway uses bluesign tool to optimize EHS situation
Jun '08
bluesign technologies ag announces that Trueway Corporation Ltd. is ready to perform a bluesign screening. Trueway plans to use the bluesign screening as a management tool to optimise its overall environment, health and safety (EHS) situation at its manufacturing site. The bluesign screening is the first step towards compliance with the bluesign standard which is Trueway's ultimate endeavour.

The bluesign screening includes a detailed on-site evaluation of the complete environment, resource and workplace situation of textile manufacturing sites. A particular focus lies on the five principles of the bluesign standard namely resource productivity, consumer safety, air emission, water emission and occupational health and safety. At the same time it indicates resource and cost saving potentials compared to “Best Available Technology”.

“The bluesign standard is the only standard worldwide that takes into consideration all aspects during manufacturing, from consumer safety to air and water emission, and from occupational health to resource productivity.

By conducting a bluesign screening, Trueway takes a giant leap toward compliance with the bluesign standard which covers the worldwide most stringent EHS requirements and will distinguish products in the future” says Mr. Detlef Fischer, Vice President of bluesign technologies ag. “We are looking forward to the buesign screening of Trueway because Trueway is not just another company who wants to manufacture sustainable products, but Trueway has decided to invest time and energy in reducing its environmental footprint and in doing something positive for the people and the environement.”
