Input Stream Management – where sustainability begins

How relevant is it to check finished products? Do they indicate, if problematic substances were used in an early stage-in process or if certain processes and production facilities are environmentally inefficient? On the basis of these considerations the bluesign® system has been established in 2000: bluesign® considers the production processes as a whole. Therefore, the applied components and processes are thoroughly audited. The aim of our so-called Input Stream Management is for unsustainable substances not to enter the production cycle at all, but to be eliminated first. The crucial point is not the number of manufacturers involved or the number of processing steps. A clean process with sustainable ingredients is decisive at the end of which a marketable product enthuses the customers. Input Stream Management helps the textile business to produce in an environmentally friendly and resource-efficient way combining both the economical and ecological advantages to the benefit of everyone involved.
