eVent fabrics, manufacturer of first fully waterproof and air permeable membrane technology for apparel, footwear and accessories, has become a bluesign® system partner.
As a bluesign system partner, eVent fabrics is committed to reducing its impact on people and the environment. The bluesign system, based on Input Stream Management, ensures that approved chemical products and raw materials are used in all steps of the manufacturing process and that substances posing risks to people and the environment are eliminated. On-site inspections verify the proper application of chemical products and raw materials in controlled processes and ensure the responsible use of resources to guarantee the highest level of consumer safety.
“We’re excited about this important achievement and what it means for not only our organization but our customers and consumers around the world. Becoming a bluesign system partner is one of many steps we are taking to continually improve our sustainability practices, streamline operations and bring innovative membrane solutions to the market,” said Chris Ferraro, General Manager, eVent fabrics.
It may be noted that a comprehensive bluesign audit confirmed that the company’s membrane manufacturing operations apply the bluesign system and meet high standards for worker safety, responsible use of resources, and that the company is continuously improving its environmental performance.
eVent fabrics’ membranes are distributed to textile specialists around the globe to create finished laminated textiles chosen by apparel, footwear and accessories brands.
