DyStar, a leading supplier of dyes, auxiliaries and services for the textile industry, recently signed a cooperation agreement with bluesign technologies ag, St. Gallen, Switzerland.

DyStar will support the bluesign system and products that conform to the bluesign standard will be offered via bluefinder, a database of the best available products for the textile industry classified on the basis of ecological and economic criteria.

bluesign technologies ag was established in 2000. The bluesign standard is an independent international quality standard for a sustainable textile industry for the benefit of people and the environment. bluesign stands for eco-friendly textiles and production and efficient use of resources.

The label identifies companies that systematically utilize the bluesign system in their production plants and products and acts as a guarantee that all statutory requirements are met without compromising on function, quality or design.

Commenting on the new partnership, Peter Waeber, CEO of bluesign technologies ag, says: “With DyStar as a supporter we are gaining a strong partner for the implementation of our standards across the supply chain for the world's leading brands and retailers.

As a company with a long history, extensive product range and technical expertise, DyStar drives forward our goal of facilitating global manufacturing of sustainable, innovative textiles.

DyStar's broad product offering also enables us to meet the requirements of the various restricted substances lists issued by brands and retailers.

This cooperation opens up opportunities for further process optimization in our drive to achieve a sustained reduction in resource utilization in the textile supply chain.”

bluesign's strategic focus on the principles of sustainable textile production are an excellent match for DyStar's commitment to Responsible Care in the areas of health, safety and the environment and its dedication to high quality standards.

The two partners are an excellent fit. Alan Cunningham, Vice President Textile Solutions at DyStar, stresses the importance of this partnership: “DyStar is committed to supporting textile producers in applying the technology needed for efficient and sustainable production and to achieving the highest standards of quality and ecology required by textile retailers and brands through our econfidence program.

We are delighted to be a technology partner for bluesign as it offers a unique global platform for independent verification of our commitment to best available technology and ecological compliance on textiles”.
