Data & Disclosure
While implementing the Joint Roadmap, the need for integrated data management became apparent. The ZDHC Programme and its value chain participants including mills, tanneries, chemical companies and third-party service providers began exploring the challenges in data capture, reporting and global synchronisation.
In 2014, the Programme began developing a universal set of XML-standards to organise the way key chemical data should be collected and shared for the benefit of all stakeholders.
In 2017, the Programme released the ZDHC Gateway, an online data sharing portal for chemical companies to assess a product's compliance against the ZDHC MRSL.
