The launch of ZDHC Training is pivotal in moving the objective of the Programme from development of tools to implementation.
“Developing safer chemical management standards is one thing,” says ZDHC Training Co-lead, Carmen Chan Senior Corporate Responsibility Manager, TESCO.
“But to truly eliminate hazardous chemicals, the next step is to educate and support those working in mills, factories and even within brands, to understand how to implement these standards.”
