Today, ten organisations commit to the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme, a coalition of over 85 contributors. By joining ZDHC, these organisations commit to working together on the Programme’s vision of widespread implementation of sustainable chemistry, driving innovations and best practices in the textile, apparel and footwear industries to protect consumers, workers and the environment.
By joining ZDHC, the organisations not only help to work on the Programme’s vision, but also commit to a strengthened commitment towards better chemical management practices and the adoption and implementation of ZDHC tools. These include, amongst others, the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (ZDHC MRSL) and the ZDHC Wastewater Guidelines.
“It’s great to see the continuous ongoing support from the industry.” says ZDHC Executive Director Frank Michel.
“We appreciate the help and commitment from all our Contributors and are delighted to welcome these ten new organisations to our ZDHC Family.” Michel continues: “With the onboarding of the new Contributors we also enlarge our geographic scope and depth by welcoming the first organisation headquartered in Bangladesh as well as growth in the number of Contributors from Italy”
Last month ZDHC officially launched the ZDHC Implementation HUB during the Friends of ZDHC Day in Amsterdam. The Implementation HUB takes the scaling of chemical and environmental management best practices to the next level and accelerates impact along the value chains of the textile, apparel, footwear and leather industries.
