What our Partners say
“Increased speed and reduced workload are the major benefits we are already seeing from using BHive to implement our new MRSL. We see these benefits within our own business as well as on the supply chain side, and feedback from our supplier is really positive. Our aim is to roll BHive out to our global supply chain.”
— Ann-Karin Dahlberg, Corporate Sustainability Manager, Lindex
“OEKO-TEX® recognizes the importance of a tool like the BHive, where brands and producers can view and compare the safety of chemicals. This kind of transparency is paramount for creating a sustainable supply chain.”
— Jonathan Wehrli, Product Manager for ECO PASSPORT and ACP by OEKO-TEX®
“At Bestseller, we are working toward some ambitious sustainability goals over the next few years. For us to achieve these goals we need accurate data at our fingertips. We’ve found BHive to be just what we need. We’ve never before had this kind of transparency regarding our suppliers’ chemical use, and the best part is that it is so easy to understand. BHive is enabling us to realize the changes we want to see, and it’s been much simpler than we imagined.”

"One thing we really value about The BHive is how easy it is to use from a brand perspective, You can tell that it was created with user-friendliness in mind. The BHive supports our due diligence approach by visualizing potential risks related to the use of hazardous chemicals and by easing the tracking of the progress made in phasing out such chemicals."

“The BHive App improved our work for our sustainability goals incredibly. For us it is especially important that the tool combines many relevant chemical certification and classification standards and is easy to handle for our supply chain partners due to the simple scanning method for chemicals.”
— Carolin Weidner, Social Compliance Coordinator, Daytex
Auto-generation of chemical inventory:
Based on all the chemicals scanned via the BHive app scanner, a chemical inventory is generated and is viewable in full in desktop mode. This inventory can be used to manage the facility’s chemicals and can also be shared with clients/ brands to show what is used on site, increasing transparency.
Pie charts are automatically generated to indicate whether chemicals used match the different sustainability or brand criteria.
This feature, available under the Dashboard, helps users stay up to date with announcements, and learn about new innovative chemical products. These announcements are visible for both mills and brands.
Washing/Dyeing mills can use this feature to show their client brands more information about their facility.
The user can also export the chemical inventory as an Excel file.
