Archroma becomes â€˜The BHiveâ€™ partner to help foster chemical compliance and management across the textile supply chain.
Archroma, a global leader in
specialty chemicals towards sustainable solutions, recently announced that it
has become a The BHiveÂ® partner to help foster chemical compliance and
management across the textile supply chain.
The BHiveÂ® is an innovative digital
chemical management platform that provides at-a-glance information about
chemical products to its users. It was developed by GoBlu International Ltd. to
allow manufacturing facilities to easily create digital inventories of the
chemical products used onsite using a smartphone. They can identify in a matter
of seconds which products meet sustainability requirements of their brand and
retail customers, who they can share this information with as well. This
enables brands and retailers to achieve full transparency about the chemical
use in their global supply chain. Now, over 30 international fashion brands and
500 factories are partnered with The BHiveÂ® to drive sustainable chemistry in
the textile and fashion industry.
More than 2000 Archroma chemical
products and dyes are now included in The BHiveÂ® database. The company has been
very active in the past few years in developing solution systems and
innovations in line with the 3 pillars of ‘The Archroma Way to a Sustainable
World: Safe, efficient, enhanced. Itâ€™s our nature’.
As part of this commitment, the
global and local product stewardship teams of Archroma support customers in
their efforts to comply with regulations, eco-certifications, and brand
requirements with timely and reliable information and documentation.
Paul Cowell, Head of Archromaâ€™s Competence Centers for Brand &
Performance Textile Specialties,
