Benninger to endorse bluesign standard

bluesign technologies ag announces cooperation with Benninger AG. In the future Benninger will endorse the systematic of the bluesign standard as a bluesign supporter with a focus on process optimization and process engineering. The idea of the bluesign standard perfectly reflects Benninger's company philosophy.

Only the “Best Available Technologies” regarding process technology, resource efficiency and product quality as well as reduction of the “environmental footprint” at the same time are supported by bluesign technologies in cooperation with Benninger to be used in the manufacturing chain. Also inputs for new development goals for the machine industry are expected to arise from the work of bluesign technologies within the textile supply chain.

The independent standard of textile industry 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 bluesignstandard 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. This is exactly where this new cooperation can make a big contribution, which results in an economical benefit for the manufacturers thanks to improved resource efficiency in their manufacturing processes.

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.
