A Thai Group of Companies to integrate bluesign standard
Jul '08
bluesign technologies ag announces that the group of companies consisting of Gamma Textile, Bischoff Gamma, Eschler Thaiknit, Gemini Textile and Setafil undergo a bluesign screening in their manufacturing sites based in Petchburi and Samutsakorn, Thailand. The group relies on a bluesign screening to manage all environmental, health and safety (EHS) issues.

In a second step, after the successful implementation of the recommendations given by the screening report, they will integrate the bluesign standard in their factories in Thailand in order to proactively manage all environmental aspects from the very beginning.

The bluesign screening includes a detailed on the spot evaluation of the environmental, resource and working place situations of the textile manufacturing sites according to the five principles of the bluesign standard. These include resource productivity, consumer safety, air and water emission as well as occupational health and safety. It indicates resource- and cost saving potentials compared with “Best Available Technology”.

Introducing and implementing the bluesign standard in their factories in Thailand not only underlines the great efforts of these firms to live up to their company philosophies, but also puts them in a strong position meeting and solving the resource problems existing in Asia.

Manufacturing according to the bluesign standard is beneficial on various levels: The sophisticated “Input Stream Management” leads to higher process efficiency and safety, to maximum safety for consumers and brands and strengthens the trust of the consumer in the responsibility of the acting brand.

Gemini Textile and Setafil : All the companies involved in the screening are partnerships between Thai and Swiss or Austrian partners aiming for top quality products produced on environmental-friendly basis.
