Wolford is the first hosiery manufacturer to be announced system partner of Bluesign Technologies, whose international bluesign® system is the world’s highest standard for sustainable production in the textile industry. Providing transparency for the whole textile supply chain, the bluesign® system is based on five principles: resource productivity, consumer safety, air emission, water emission and occupational health and safety.
“These days, consumers not only expect high-quality, functional products, but a responsible, transparent company to produce them too,” stated Axel Dreher, COO at Wolford. “This system partnership reflects the perceived overall responsibility of Wolford in practice and is the next logical step in terms of the company’s internal sustainability process. Furthermore, the introduction of the bluesign® system will further develop and enhance the confidence that our partners, customers and end consumers have in us.”
“Wolford is aware of its social responsibility and has already set benchmarks in terms of ecological standards by way of investment measures at its headquarters in Bregenz,” he adds. “We will continue along this path in the future.”
