Today, the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme welcomes six new companies as ZDHC Contributors. With the additional organisations, ZDHC now consists of 92 contributors, divided into brands, value chain affiliates and associates.
By joining ZDHC, the organisations commit to a strengthened responsibility 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.
Additionally, the four organisations joining in the Chemical Industry Category are also registered with public products in the ZDHC Gateway – Chemical Module. The ZDHC Gateway – Chemical Module is the first compatible ZDHC data exchange platform that enables chemical formulators to securely share chemical information in-line with the ZDHC standards and tools.
“I am delighted to have the six companies joining our Programme,” says Frank Michel, ZDHC Executive Director. “With Target, we join forces with a leading US retailer and are looking forward to their essential input and expertise from the retailing perspective. Further, I am excited to see that our geographical scope continues to expand with NICCA CHEMICAL as the first ZDHC Contributor based in Japan.”
