This strategic partnership unlocks the potential for bluesign technologies’ industry-leading assessment tools to become accessible to materials suppliers, at an unprecedented scale and pace. Previously, to access these tools and data, a brand needed to take its supply chain through individual factory assessments. For an out-sourced global supply chain of Nike’s size, that would require significant investment and a number of years. The agreement opens access to bluesign technologies’ key tools and data for an expanded supplier base at nominal cost.
