bluesign technologies ag announces cooperation with CHT R. Beitlich GmbH from Germany and BEZEMA AG in Switzerland, belonging to the same group of companies. In the future the CHT group will support the systematics of bluesign-Standard and offer all textile auxiliaries and dyes certified according to the bluesign standard in the bluefinder. bluefinder is a product database with ecologically and economically "best available products.

The offer in the bluefinder will be continuously extended by the mentioned cooperation. "CHT group is an ideal partner for bluesign-system due to its complete range of products along the textile chain from spin finishes to pretreatment products and dyes up to special finishes and its comprehensive 'know-how' about production processes and process safety. We are looking forward with pleasure to a successful cooperation with the whole CHT group“, said Detlef Fischer, VP of bluesign technologies ag.

Uwe Halder, managing director for research & development, marketing and sales of the CHT group emphasises the importance of the future cooperation: "The CHT group works out individual system solutions adapted to the customers' demands which guarantee an effective and ecological production process. We take our global responsibility seriously and seize all chances to achieve sustained ecologically highest quality standards as desired by retailers and trademark companies. As partner in technology of bluesign technologies ag we are looking forward to the cooperation offering worldwide a platform to our claim on a responsible and sustainable textile finishing.“

In response to consumers, who are more aware of sustainable production and harmful substances in textiles than ever, bluesign technologies ag 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 air emission, 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.

Various certificate labels and “Restricted Substances Lists” (RSLs) are trying to satisfy the brands' and retailers' concerns regarding environment, health and safety by excluding harmful substances from final textile goods, with little success, as regular analyses from consumer organisations show time and again.

The bluesign standard follows an opposing principle. Instead of testing the endproduct, it maintains an intelligent “Input Stream Management”, i.e. it certifies chemical formulations and compounds that have been rigorously tested against harmful effects on humans and the environment. At the same time it also optimises consumption of the relevant resources water, energy and raw materials during textile manufacturing. It is a holistic approach towards the effective management of relevant resources within each single textile process of the supply chain, from fibre production to retail, from consumer until disposal.
