Swiss material verification solutions firm Bluesign and Vibram explain the new status itmarks a significant milestone in their joint commitment to fostering sustainable practices within the footwear industry.
“The relationship between supply chain partners is often perceived as customer-supplier, involving hidden secrets. However, Bluesign, as a neutral party, facilitates easier communication of ingredients and knowledge,” says Igor Brassini, group compliance manager of Vibram.
“Today, we are proud to announce our official partnership with Bluesign as the first shoe sole manufacturer and the first footwear brand to be represented.”
Vibram, which describes itself as a pioneer in shoe sole production, is committed to the manufacture of long-lasting, high-quality products. By using recycled materials and significantly reducing production waste, Vibram says it sets the standard for responsible, innovative footwear production.
Over the last two years, the two companies have synergised their distinct strengths, resulting in shared know-how, connecting the footwear industry with the rigorous Bluesign Chemical Standard.
“By offering expertise in chemical management, our mission is to reduce environmental impact and provide critical knowledge for making essential changes,” says Bluesign CEO Daniel Rüfenacht.
