bluesign® is a leading global system for managing the environmental impacts of textile production through management of inputs and outputs. The bluesign® standard is a textile certification system that works to prevent chemicals of concern from entering materials at each step of the manufacturing process.
bluesign® provides a variety of tools, resources, and guidance which can be used as a supplement to this Guide, and to assist with the implementation of best practices for the responsible management of chemicals and reduction of environmental health and safety (EHS) risks The tools include the following:
- blueguide: A database of approved materials
- bluefinder: A database of approved chemicals
- bluesign system substances list (BSSL): A list of chemicals that are currently banned or restricted in manufacturing and/or finished materials
