By defining ‘sustainable attributes’ for bluesign®approved chemicals registered in the bluesign®Finder, Bluesign is furthering its ability to provide more sustainable solutions by providing specified search functions to help chemical suppliers and the textile industry make better informed decisions. The bluesign®Finder is a web-based, advanced search engine for manufacturers. It contains a positive list of preferred chemical products. Today more than 20,000 bluesign®approved chemical products are registered in the bluesign®Finder
In addition to the existing functions within the bluesign®Finder, Bluesign®System Partner chemical suppliers can claim selected sustainability attributes for their bluesign® approved chemical products that will be displayed within the bluesign®Finder. Sustainability claims will be verified by Bluesign during on-site assessments and through chemical assessments. The Bluesign® Finder will be amended with search functions starting this year. It will evolve and implement a comprehensive online search engine for sustainable textile auxiliaries and dyes.
