The North Face`s rapidly growing engagement with bluesign technologies is the cornerstone of their efforts to drive improvements in their supply chain. The bluesign standard is a rigorous, independent system to ensure that factories address harmful chemicals at the fabric level and meet demanding requirements for consumer and worker safety, efficient resource use and environmental protection. The bluesign system also requires that mills meet the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), the European REACH (Registration, Evaluation, and Authorisation of Chemicals) protocols and all other relevant requirements. The North Face has aggressive goals for increasing the percentage of bluesign approved fabric they develop each season and aim to convert 65% of their fabric to the bluesign standard by 2015. Their approach has always been to prioritize their high volume fabrics and largest suppliers to create the greatest and most immediate impact.
