ZDHC Events

Our collaboration includes work with many stakeholders in the textile and footwear industry therefore ZDHC attends, speaks at and hosts various events throughout the year to drive industry-wide change towards the goal of zero discharge of hazardous chemicals.

Whether presenting at international industry gatherings or arranging ZDHC hosted or co-hosted meetings and conferences, we continuously showcase ZDHC tools such as our Manufacturer Restricted Substances List (MRSL). Further, we align and collaborate with key industry actors, to reflect on and refine our scope and present key tools such as the ZDHC Gateway - Chemical Module, ZDHC Academy, and the Wastewater Guidelines.

All up and coming events that we organise, participate in or contribute to are outlined below.
