Everest also applied fashion garment concepts to sportswear, making sportswear more fashionable. In 2003, Everest moved into the sportswear market, establishing the Everest Technology Research Center and developing high unit price functional fabric coating and laminating technology, moving from textile physics to textile chemistry, and beginning to develop various kinds of coating material. The entire textile industry has gradually changed from traditional industry to high-tech industry, bringing about the upgrading of the whole textile industry. Everest joined the Southern Taiwan Textile Research Alliance in 2007, using different industry alliances and industry-government-academia resource to generate more innovative R&D energy. In May this year Everest received bluesign certification, becoming the first Asian company to win certification for laminated fabric. This testifies to Everest’s continuing efforts to achieve sustainability by upholding the strict five Bluesign principles :resource productivity, consumer safety, air emission, water emission and occupational health and safety since officially becoming a bluesign partner in 2008.
