bluesign technologies is pleased to announce that SGS has acquired a 50% stakeholding in bluesign technologies ag.

The partnership will on one side facilitate the implementation of the bluesign standard throughout the textile supply chain by using the extensive SGS network of trained professionals around the world. On the other side it furthers the growth and recognition of the independent bluesign standard which puts bluesign technologies in a very strong position to deliver its valuable know-how to the industry.

In response to consumers, who are more aware of sustainable production and harmful substances in textiles than ever, bluesign technologies has developed the bluesign standard. The bluesign standard addresses not only consumer safety aspects, but covers the complete range of “Environment, Health and Safety” (EHS) issues within the entire textile manufacturing chain, namely aire mission, water emission, occupational health and safety and resource management. With a particular focus on “Best Available Technology” the resource usage can significantly be reduced within the entire textile supply chain.

The improved resource efficiency leads to a positive contribution to the conservation of the environment, and the related decline in CO2 emissions contributes to the reduction of global warming.
