Everest Textile Ltd Co Taiwan announces that it has received the bluesign award and officially became a bluesign system partner.

Based on the mutual collaboration, the 21 product lines that Everest provides comply with the five principles of the bluesign standard including Resource Productivity, Consumer Safety, Air Emission, Water Emission and Occupational Health and Safety.

This award demonstrates Everest's determination on practicing sustainable production, Everest's optimisation potentials in facing future global competition, and the ability to maximize its energy efficiency.

In the future, consumers have more chance to purchase garments that are made of Everest's high-tech and environmentally-friendly fabrics in the retail market responding to the growing ECO concept together with Everest.

The bluesign standard is a comprehensive "Input Stream Management System" that covers all Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) issues of the textile manufacturing chain.

In order to perform the corporate responsibility and meet the highest environmental, health and safety requirements, Everest applied for the screening of bluesign standard right after initiating "Everest Sustainability Model" in 2007, and has gained the Award to be a bluesign system partner in April 2008.

In the future, Everest will provide more and more eco-friendly products to the market with the concern of customers' demands, consumers' health, and environmental protection. Mr. Roger Yeh, the president of Everest, said, "Sustainability is a critical factor determining the competitive edge of globalize enterprises.

Obtaining the bluesign award is a beginning of Eco protection. Everest will keep devoting itself to save energy, reduce waste and take "zero-emissions" as the ultimate goal of Everest's three plants to assume our corporate responsibility and preserve the environment in the future".

Everest also contributes to public welfare activities of environmental protection to show its great concern on saving the earth, which include adopting the leaf-walker conservation plan in Quantian, Tainan and sponsoring the coastal cleanup activity in 2008 held by The Society of Wilderness.

In order to promote Taiwan industry's development of sustainability to the world, Mr. Rob Van Hattum, the Netherlands' director of the documentary film "Waste Equals Food", was invited to visit Everest's Tainan ECO factory.

During the visit, Mr. Rob Van Hattum had a great impression of Everest's sustainability model, and promised to recommend Everest's ECO achievements to the world.

Mr. Rob Van Hattum expects that Everest's positive attitude towards environmental protection will affect other textile manufacturers both in Taiwan and in the rest of the world to respond to sustainable, environmentally-friendly production collectively.
