To help foster chemical compliance and management across the textile supply chain, the producer of dyes and specialty chemicals Archroma Management LLC, Reinach/Switzerland, has become a The BHive partner. The BHive 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., Hong Kong/China, 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 BHive to drive sustainable chemistry in the textile and fashion industry.
More than 2000 Archroma chemical products and dyes are now included in The BHive database.
