98% of Suppliers who carried out wastewater testing in 2020 had no detections of restricted substances from the ZDHC MRSL parameters for wastewater and sludge.

The launch of the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL) challenged the industry to act beyond finished products. Our approach tackles the problem at the source by ensuring hazardous chemicals never enter the value chain in the first place.

Manufacturers > Learn more about the ZDHC Programme

The ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme guides value chains towards a sustainable use of safer chemistry.Safer chemical inputs make a big difference, as long as they are used the right way and when good procedures and best practice are in place, outputs become cleaner, and process works. Measuring indicators such as, wastewater, sludge and air quality validates the work that is being done with chemical inputs and processes. It helps to determine if the output water and air is safer. Our solutions help the industry to transform their value chains.
