Bluesign is becoming a ZDHC contributor after initially agreeing to work together on methodology, structure, criteria and higher level verifications. Based on Bluesign System, a remarkable number of chemical products from the Bluesign Finder, Bluesign's list of 12,000+ positive chemical products will now be added to ZDHC Gateway - highest verification level.

The upload will include chemical products from 190+ chemical suppliers, including the leading chemical companies of the Global Chemical Industry Round Table (GCIRT), said Bluesign in a press release.

"We saw an opportunity to reduce costly duplicated efforts and provide the best available technique and best practice to overcome the complex challenges of the industry. We are proud that the approach that Bluesign brought to the market 19 years ago will support the ZDHC initiative for the convergence of chemical management in our industry. This initiative provides clear value and an understanding of the possibilities when the industry works together towards the common good," said Jill Dumain, CEO of Bluesign Technologies AG.

Since 2000, Bluesign has used a scientific chemical assessment to evaluate the hazards of 25,000 chemical formulations to create the first and most comprehensive positive list. From this assessment, over 12,000 commercially available chemical products have been approved to produce textiles and leather. These products collectively make up the Bluesign Finder. The chemical products from the Bluesign Finder will be recognised at level 3 in the ZDHC Gateway - Chemical Module. The Bluesign System monitors over 900 chemical substances, including over 600 banned substances based on both the precautionary principle and legal bans, and adheres to the industry's Manufacturing Restricted Substance Lists (MRSL) and Restricted Substance Lists (RSL).

The Bluesign System is the key to sustainable textile production. It eliminates harmful substances from the very start of the manufacturing process, and sets and controls standards for environmentally friendly and safe production. This not only ensures that the final textile product meets very stringent consumer safety requirements worldwide, but also provides confidence to the consumer in acquiring a sustainable product.

The Bluesign System has been adopted by worldwide leading textile and accessory manufacturers. Various significant key players in the chemical and machine industry rely on the Bluesign System. Well-known brands in the outdoor, sportswear and fashion industry rely on the extensive knowledge of Bluesign Technologies AG. Today the globally recognised Bluesign System includes in partnership more than 190 chemical suppliers, 300 textile manufacturers, and 90 brands working together to bring safer chemistry and chemical practices to the world-wide textile and apparel industries.
