The decision was made in cooperation with Stahl, a supplier of leather chemistry and Bluesign system partner since 2017.

"The Bluesign Bluefinder has been proven as a functional tool to detox a supply chain covering the complete textile production process," explains Kurt Schlaepfer, head of customer relation management at Bluesign Technologies. "We thoroughly assess the chemical products with on-site verified data and practice oriented risk assessment including hazard assessment and exposure scenario calculations to ensure their compliance to strict limits regarding ecological and toxicological properties and risks."

The Bluesign Bluefinder lists over 10,000 positive chemical formulations, and helps partners to properly manage chemicals and to replace hazardous chemicals with safer alternatives. Partners include stakeholders in the global apparel and footwear industry, ranging from chemical suppliers to manufacturers and brands.
