Bluesign technologies, a global developer of the bluesign system adopted by worldwide leading textile and accessory manufacturers for sustainable textiles, has collaborated with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation. The company will support the ZDHC initiative for chemical management from the beginning of the textile process.

Since 2000, bluesign has used a scientific chemical assessment to evaluate the hazards of 20,000 chemical formulations creating the first and most comprehensive positive list. From this assessment, over 11,000 commercially available chemical products have been approved to produce textiles and leather and collectively make up the bluesign bluefinder.

The chemical products from the bluesign bluefinder will be recognised at level 3 in the ZDHC Gateway - Chemical Module. The bluesign bluefinder has also banned over 600 products based on both the precautionary principle and legal bans as well as adhering to the industry’s Manufacturing Restricted Substance Lists (MRSL) and Restricted Substance Lists (RSL).

The evolution of the bluesign system has grown to include robust tools to ensure the best practices are available to all segments in the industry. The tools not only protect consumer safety and environmental impacts of air emissions, waste water effluent, and soil contamination, but also bring occupational safety to the people working in the chemical and textile manufacturing facilities with the comprehensive bluesign onsite assessments and product stewardship services. With this holistic approach, bluesign is able to provide services to cover all the ZDHC requirements such as the ChemCheck, InCheck reports, and level 1 and 2 schemes.

Jill Dumain, CEO of bluesign technologies said, “We are proud the approach that Bluesign brought to the market 18 years ago will support the ZDHC initiative of convergence of chemical management in our industry. This initiative also provides a clear value and understanding of the possibilities when the industry works together towards the common good.” (GK)
