Strategic alliance for a sustainable textile industry.
Bayer MaterialScience AG, Leverkusen, Germany, and bluesign technologies ag, St. Gallen, Switzerland, have joined forces to create a more sustainable textile industry with the goal of advancing their initiative globally. The objective is to ensure safe production processes and working conditions along the entire value chain.
A global supplier of high-tech polymer materials, Bayer recently introduced the waterborne polyurethane (PU) technology INSQIN™. The bluesign system eliminates harmful substances from the manufacturing process and sets and controls standards for environmentally-friendly and safe production.
The companies are working together to expand Bayer’s sustainability concept, which aims to improve people’s lives while conserving resources and minimizing the impact on mankind and the environment.
